Run, Run, Run! Beating the Train

As my friend and I were taking a walk one day, we heard a train whistle in the distance and knew we only had a minute or two to beat the train and get across the tracks in order to not allow our walk to be interrupted.  So we ran.   Whew!   I’m not used to that, but we did beat the train!

Sometimes we need to run.

There are trains in life that come along our paths of life and we ought not to let them over take us.  We often need to run in order to avoid certain dangers and obstacles that may hinder our Christian life.

There are trains in life that come along our paths of life and we ought not to let them over take us.  We often need to run in order to avoid certain dangers and obstacles that may hinder our Christian life.Joseph ran and got away from Potiphar’s wife instead of letting sin ruin his life.

Genesis 39:12  And she caught him by his garment, saying, Lie with me: and he left his garment in her hand, and fled, and got him out.

 

We should run to the Lord to hide us and deliver us from our enemies.

Psalms 143:9  Deliver me, O LORD, from mine enemies: I flee unto thee to hide me.

Proverbs 18:10 The name of the Lord is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.

Run from things that will hinder your Christian life and instead be obedient to these verses:

1 Timothy 6:11(read the whole chapter)  But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.

2 Timothy 2:22  Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.

 

As we Submit ourselves to God and resist the devil we will find that he will run from us! 

James 4:7  Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

 

May each day be a day that we run the Christian life with patience and lay aside every weight of sin

Hebrews 12:1  Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,

While running we need to look to Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith.  He knows what lies ahead so don’t hesitate to keep on running.  He will be there to help.  And remember, never try to outrun God’s train.
