Running To Win

Looking Back To Planet Earth #3 of 3

August 7, 2008
One day the race of life will end: no more laps around the track, we'll finally be at rest from all our labors. But believers know that they must run that race while they can, because their goal is to please Jesus, the Author and Finisher of their Faith. In pleasing Him, they honor the Father, who rules supreme over all.

One day the race of life will end: no more trials, and no more opportunities to serve the Lord on this earth. One day the last lap will be run and the goal line will be crossed. The Bible gives us some signs that point to the time when that last lap might start, and why we must be faithful to the end.

We may never know in this life why we we are faced with a difficult test of character. But someday, it will all be clear. When God evaluates the way we ran the race of life, He will note every time we obeyed Him, no matter what. He will reward us for following Him in faith, even when all the evidence said, "Go your own way."

When the hi-tech bubble burst, lots of people lost lots of money in the stock market. Then there is Job of old. Job lost more than his money. He lost everything he owned. He lost his ten children. He lost his health. Still, he honored God. Would you? Would I?

Why do bad things happen to good people? What is the point of being righteous if the righteous have to suffer? It seems that we who run life's race can sometimes only limp, kept on the sidelines by difficulties of all kinds. Today: we will see that God has a purpose in every trial His children experience.

Jesus Christ did not die accidentally. Every detail of His sacrifice was predetermined before time began. God was not caught off guard. God was in control. And we who believe in Christ look to His cross with deep humility and say with Thomas, "My Lord, and My God."

There are no words to adequately portray what happened on a pivotal Friday in Jerusalem some 2,000 years ago. An innocent man was led to His death for crimes He did not commit. But behind the drama was the real scriptwriter: God was about to ensure the salvation of all who would believe in His Son. And the cross was the only way to do this.
