Run To Win
Running 400 meters under 46 seconds is an incredible achievement. Running it with a broken leg is simply astonishing!
In the 2012 Olympics, Manteo Mitchell of the United States broke his left leg whilst running in the heats of the 4×400-meter relay, and yet he managed to finish his section of the relay in excellent time, simply because he “didn’t want to let the… team down.” What a legend!
In the race of life, we may get injured sometimes (many times), but it’s comforting to be reminded of the finish line. Much more than just a stadium full of a crowd of cheering spectators, will be the Great Champion & Victor himself to give us the crown of glory that will never fade away.
“Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.” James 1:12
Wishing you every blessing in Christ Jesus
