Acts 20:18-24

I had two goals when I ran my first 5k. Goal 1: To finish. Goal 2: To not finish last. I met both goals, and later, even did a sprint triathlon where my goals were exactly the same. The sprint triathlon took a lot more training to reach the goals.

We are called not just to run the race, but to finish the race. We are called not to give up when things get tough or when God doesn’t answer our prayers in the way we think He should.

Our race is not one that ends at a finish line with medals; our race is not run on streets lined with people cheering us on. Our race is run in day-to-day life, as we strive to be living testimonies of the good news of God’s grace in our lives. This is our task; this is our aim.

Today, ask God to show you the ways you can be a testimony of God’s good news of grace. Ask Him whom you can encourage along in the journey today. Then follow through and encourage someone along the journey.
