This week we solemnly remember the ultimate sacrifice of our Savior. The headlines of Christ's cruel death could have read BLOOD-SWEAT & TEARS as in anguish He cried out . . .
"Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but Yours be done."...and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground. Luke 22:42& 44b NIV
CHRIST'S FINAL RACE WAS LOT ON THE CROSS -
BUT IT WAS WON AT THE TOMB .. . HALLELUJAH!
Because Christ conquered death in our place, the headlines read BLOOD, SWEAT & CHEERS!!!!
We are in the race of life . . . a race that brings us not only through blood and sweat but also to cheers as we run life's marathon with Christ! Although it can be sress-filled, it is also exhilarating and promises the pay-off of profound purpose and eternal joy.
"... let us run with endurance the race God has set before us." Hebrews 12:3 NLT
Blessings...may the race set before you bring cheers of joy.
