3-Minute Mile Intro
|Posted on September 1, 2020 at 5:35 PM|
Welcome to the 3-Minute Mile Blog.
A 3-minute mile does not exist in the natural running world.
No one has ever been able to run that fast.
But, in your spiritual run – you can be transported quickly.
ADVENTURES IN PRAYER
TIMELY VISION FOR THE FUTURE
QUICK SOLUTIONS TO PROBLEMS
God can do it through YOU!
He needs YOU!
God designed YOU to run the good race.
Explore with me some scriptures about the race:
1 Corinthians 9:24-27 (AMP)
24 Do you not know that in a race all the runners run [their very best to win], but only one receives the prize? Run [your race] in such a way that you may seize the prize and make it yours! 25 Now every athlete who [goes into training and] competes in the games is disciplined and exercises self-control in all things. They do it to win a crown that withers, but we [do it to receive] an imperishable [crown that cannot wither]. 26 Therefore I do not run without a definite goal; I do not flail around like one beating the air [just shadow boxing]. 27 But [like a boxer] I strictly discipline my body and make it my slave, so that, after I have preached [the gospel] to others, I myself will not somehow be disqualified [as unfit for service].
2 Thessalonians 3:1
1 Finally, brothers and sisters, pray continually for us that the word of the Lord will spread rapidly and be honored [triumphantly celebrated and glorified], just as it was with you; 2 and [pray] that we will be rescued from perverse and evil men; for not everyone has the faith.
19 Understand this, my beloved brothers and sisters. Let everyone be quick to hear [be a careful, thoughtful listener], slow to speak [a speaker of carefully chosen words and], slow to anger [patient, reflective, forgiving]; 20 for the [resentful, deep-seated] anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God [that standard of behavior which He requires from us].
6 But He gives us more and more grace [through the power of the Holy Spirit to defy sin and live an obedient life that reflects both our faith and our gratitude for our salvation]. Therefore, it says, “God is opposed to the proud and haughty, but [continually] gives [the gift of] grace to the humble [who turn away from self-righteousness].”
19 Then, when they had rowed three or four miles [and were near the center of the sea], they saw Jesus walking on the sea and approaching the boat; and they were [terribly] frightened.
The disciples saw Jesus walking on the sea. They were three or four miles from shore. Not just a hop, skip, and a jump.
Bill Connelly quote – “Before you judge a man, walk a mile in his shoes. Who cares after that – you’ve got his shoes, and he’s a mile away.” It is an ugly statement. So sad.
I may not be able to tell you anything, but maybe I can get you thinking about your perspectives, experiences, and motivations. I desire to point you to the ways of Jesus so that you can have an abundant life.
A PRAYER FOR YOU:
Father, I come in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth on behalf of this reader. Help them to train well, to run swiftly, to glorify You by spreading the Good News, to have a high standard of behavior, and to practice a humble walk of grace. Thank You for Your blessings! Amen
Now, enjoy your day and watch God move in your life.
Remember that it’s an adventure that you are walking into daily.
