I used to run four or five days a week. I ran for exercise. I trained for races. I ran as a way to deal with stress. But my knees won’t let me run now. So I try to bike, walk, work around the house. My college cross country coach taught me a lot of life lessons.
Paul tells us to keep running the race of faith and keep looking for Jesus. We can never stop running our personal faith race. But sometimes we have to pass the baton, hand off a ministry or service to another person.
The time is almost here for me to pass the ministry baton for Peace to Pastor Andy. He will take up the ministry at Peace. I’m praying that God will give me the opportunity to pick up the ministry baton in a different place.
But for now keep running your race of faith. It is too soon to quit.
