Latest news and 'Thought for the day'
Thought for the Day by Matt Jones (Associate Minister for Music)
I didn’t watch much of the Olympics this year. Maybe it was the time difference with most of the events happening live in the mornings, or maybe it was the fact that I am mad about cricket leaving me with not much energy to keep up with another sporting event.
But one thing among many that I do like about the Olympics is the crowds. Not just the main arena but all the smaller ones that create such an incredible atmosphere. And it was so sad to see event after event empty. Athletes competing at the highest level and yet no-one to cheer them on in the moment.
I think the endurance events are the ones where those athletes need the crowd the most. The swells and roars that keep them going that little bit further when they have almost nothing left to give.
The first verses of Hebrews 12 tell us to run that race of faith, throwing off those things that hinder us and sin that so easily entangles. And we are being cheered on by a great cloud of witnesses. Saints of old who have gone before, who have run the race and know the prize is worth it. There is no pandemic or disaster that prevents those crowds cheering us on. They keep encouraging us to keep going, fixing our eyes on the author and perfecter of our faith, the Lord Jesus.
Keep going in your faith, keep running that race day by day.
