If you would like to break the shackles cash has on your heart, stay with us.

There is one thing Jesus was really down on. He told His followers to not give money so as to be seen by others. God wants our giving to be a secret we keep with Him. After all, God, not the IRS, keeps the ultimate books. It is one thing to give when others can see your generosity, but today we will examine our motives for giving when no one is watching.

Some day there will be no more races. The winners will be rewarded, and the track left behind. But until then, we must run. Believers who run life's race know that their goal is Jesus, Who is the Author and Finisher of their faith. Peter knew this. Peter believed this, and his life's legacy still bears fruit as you and I continue in the faith he defended. Turn to Second Peter chapter 3, and stay with us.

Even if you have gotten "a new lease on life," that lease will one day expire. What kind of legacy will you leave behind? Paul could say, "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith." And before his death, the Apostle Peter stirred up his readers toward fruitful growth in the faith. Today, we assess the impact of Peter's life on those he knew, and on the generations to follow.

Whether during war or peace, Christians know that God is in charge. Nothing men can do to us bypasses His approval. Peter's race of life was interrupted by some jail time, until God's angel got him back on track. His job was not yet finished...and the executioner would have to wait. Today we learn more about God's protection of His own.

Great runners may feel invincible. While earthly victories come and go, there is a sense in which believers are invincible. Peter knew that his race of life would not end by execution in a jail cell. But when the angel opened the prison doors, the young church could not believe he was really free. Then again, would we have thought any differently? To find out, stay with us.

As Christians mature, they eventually realize that there is Someone carefully orchestrating the symphony of their lives. As we run life's race, we know that God is going before us to make sure the track is just the way He wants it. That is what happened for the Apostle Peter, and that is also what happens for you and me. Today we will see what happens when Peter goes to prison.
