Roy’s Blog: “The Race”

https://bphowlett.com/2018/09/17/roys-blog-the-race-2

Acts 20:24 (paraphrased) Finish the race, complete the task the Lord Jesus has given you.

Life is a race. Unfortunately most never finish it. They get sidetracked taking a shortcut that leads nowhere or they get enticed down a path going the wrong way. Maybe they spend too much time wondering which road to take. Time passes by without them ever attaining what God intended for their lives.

We get distracted by unnecessary things. The desire to have the “American dream” hobbles us into jobs and living conditions that bury us, burden us, and take up precious time.

Paul writes in 2 Timothy 4:7 “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.”

Will you be able to say that about your life?
