"Take Your Mark"
23rd Sunday after Pentecost | Matthew 28: 19 - 20
One thing is evident between reminiscing on the World Olympics of Tokyo, celebrating the continuation of College Football, or enjoying the current Baseball World Series. We live in a wondrous world, full of inspiring people. It is incredible what people can accomplish when they set their minds, time, talents, and treasure to fulfill a goal or objective.
It is only natural that many of us pay attention to these champions in their respective fields and celebrate their achievements. All of them have one thing in common. They were to “go for it!” To run the race, be ready, not give up, perform at their highest level and finish strong at each event.
Know that the work of our Church is no different. As Christians, we are to “go for it!” Like the Apostle Paul in Hebrews 12:1 “Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.”
We are to be ready, not give up, perform at our highest level and finish strong at each event or task. After all, we are joined by an Almighty and Generous God, who has loved us first.
People of God, we are called to be good stewards of the time, talents, treasure that God has provided and to live abundantly in God’s Grace. We exist in a community, and we are to represent our Mighty Lord proportionality in the present, during our lives, and at the end of our life’s journey by forging a legacy for the next generation.
