Welcome to the website, Run the Good Race. All glory to the Lord not only for this website, but also for helping and leading me in life, for His work and His race. The reasons why I felt led to do this website is to give honour to our Lord Jesus Christ and to use it for His purpose and as a platform to share God’s word to everyone.
In the Slow Mag 42km race on the 27th April 2014 I had the best meeting in my life, a meeting with the Lord. I was on my way to run a good race when I had to stop to help a young gentleman (who was running his first 42km race). I still had 10km left to run but I could not ignore somebody that needed my help.
The Lords plan and meeting had started and for the last 10km the Lord showed me the race that I should rather be running – running for HIM.
I need to share the true message about running the race. We can run a physical race, 5, 10, 21, or 42 km. We also run the daily race; we jump out of bed and race from point A to Z to get through the day. But the most important race that anybody can run is: God’s race.
– Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us – Hebrews 12:1
Seeing that the race God set out for us is a lifelong marathon, we must commit ourselves to run to the very end. A daily regimen of prayer, worship, reading God’s Word and examining our lives for impediments will help. We will persevere by maintaining a Christlike attitude even in the midst of trials.
No matter how long the race may be, we keep our eyes on Jesus, “the champion who initiates and perfects our faith”.
