Still in the Race?

Happy Monday people!

Most of us would have watched the homecoming ceremonies for renowned evangelist Billy Graham at the weekend, I am certain it would have generated a mixture of emotions.

Funerals have a way of confronting us with our own mortality. For me it was a sober reflection of how I was running my own race!

What a homecoming! I couldn’t help but imagine the millions of angels welcoming Billy Graham into God’s presence.

Billy Graham fought the good fight and finished his race. We are running our life’s race right now, one day our race too will end, what will be written on our scoreboards? What kind of homecoming will we have?

We are surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses, so let us throw off all that hinders and the sin that easily entangles, and run with perseverance the race marked out for us. (Hebrews 12:1)

The baton has now passed to us!….Let us run to win!

Are you still in the race?

Good morning.
