It really struck a cord reading that. There are so many people racing about in this life. In Singapore racing seems to be a national pastime (nothing to do with the Grand Prix coming here next month). We are rushing around using enormous amounts of energy for material things. Time is such a valuable commodity now and we are wasting it on things that are destined to be destroyed.
The Olympics has just started and there is a lot of racing going on there. That's alright I guess we can all enjoy that, but lets face it there is more. There is more to this life than sport, entertainment, work and collecting toys. Paul wrote,
I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.That's what we need to pressing on towards - that's what we need to be racing for. Eternal life, now there is a goal really worth striving for. Imagine if people started using the same sort of energy they use on getting ahead in this life on achieving eternal life. What a wondrous thing to see. So join with me - Race for the eternal prize.
