THE RACE OF A LIFETIME (WEEK 39)

It is finished. When Jesus spoke these words on the cross, He was not letting out a sigh of relief because HIS pain had come to an end. He was still in unbearable agony as He laid down His life for the sin of the whole world. What HAD certainly finished was OUR eternal damnation […]

THE RACE OF A LIFETIME (WEEK 37)

This is a true story. I left the house early yesterday intending to run all the way to Norman Park and then participate in the morning’s Parkrun. The distance from home to the park is roughly 10km. After running nearly 4k, I began to feel heaviness in my left shin. Not again! That was the […]

THE RACE OF A LIFETIME (WEEK 34)

There are two kinds of “runners” in this world. Those who run away from challenges and those who run towards challenges. Which kind are you? Let me show you what I mean from a familiar Bible story. Goliath was a monster of a man. He stood between Israel and victory. Each time the soldiers of […]

THE RACE OF A LIFETIME (WEEK 28)

I had barely turned the left corner at the end of my street when I heard the Lord say, “You are not working hard enough.” I kept on running as the word registered in my spirit. Somehow, I knew what He meant. As a co-worker with God, not only do I need to be about […]

THE RACE OF A LIFETIME (WEEK 25)

It describes, one after the other, the achievements of people who were called by God and through whom God accomplished His purpose in the earth. These people now form the “great cloud of witnesses” that urge us to […]

THE RACE OF A LIFETIME (WEEK 19)

The course that heaven sets before us involves not only twists and turns, but also roundabouts and crossroads. We, therefore, have to run with patience or risk spinning off course. Speed is counterproductive when you miss your way. At the crossroads of life, you need to be sure of the way. You need divine direction, […]

THE RACE OF A LIFETIME (WEEK 14)

I was scheduled to lead this week’s running session for my church’s running group. It’s part of a 0-to-5k programme to help participants build the endurance they need to successfully run a 5-kilometre race. I took part in the spring edition earlier in the year and benefited immensely from the sessions. Today, I am leading […]
