Running the race to win
‘Let us keep in step with the Spirit’ Galatians 5:25
Every year at my primary school sports day I used to win the three-legged race. There was a science to that race that my fellow competitors (losers) failed to grasp. Now that my race days are over, let me let you in on the secret.
1) Strap yourself REALLY tightly together when you tie the tape around your ankles. So tight, that your two legs act as one.
2) Run with your arms around each other, and let one person take the 'Lead'. That way you will run in absolute harmony - the two running as one.
3) Most importantly, choose the fastest boy in the school as your partner. In my case this was Martin Green, also known as the human whippet.
Such was the winning recipe and it guaranteed top marks for the our team plus a bit of 'street cred' for Martin and I.
You can see where I'm going on this as regards Galatians 5:25 can't you? The Christian life is often referred to as a 'race'. A race that we are called to win (1 Cor 9:24). In order to win, we must keep in step with the Spirit. I'll let you apply my three-legged science to the Christian race and to take comfort from the truth that we have God Almighty as our partner. Always let Him take the lead and bind yourself tightly to Him with the cords of obedience and trust.
'I run in the path of your commands' Psalm 119:32

The Church as a Body - Situations Vacant!!
On Sunday we heard that we are all part of the One Body, the church and we all have a part to play. Almost every part of church life is in need of extra support and help but the two we focused on in particular were our children and tech teams. If you think you might be able to serve in one of those roles we would love to hear from you.
