"If you’ve raced with men on foot and they have worn you out, how can you compete with horses? If you stumble in safe country, how will you manage in thickets by the Jordan?" (Jeremiah 12:5). Our journey is intended to be more than simply "stumbling" through the days while the world "wears us out.” We are made to experience the thrill of "running with horses” and to navigate life amongst the "thickets." The RWH blog focuses on both the spiritual race of which Jeremiah speaks, and the physical act of running that I absolutely love. In short, it's where "the miles meet the Message" to provide insight, perspective & encouragement that might enable you & I to successfully run either of the races set before us. May our course be purposeful and may we be passionate in our pursuit of the abundant life He desires for us.

ROCC RFG 2017 - Week 10

Given our music-themed week-ten evening, I'm going with Here Comes The Rain Again, (who can forget that synthesized Eurythmics sound of the synthesized decade), as the best descriptor of our time together - both last night and for much of this season six!

But here's the good news, did we let that rain stop us - NO! Great work by each of the groups, running 25 minutes non-stop through either our indoor cross-country track or the rain-soaked 5K route. Nobody melted and what didn't stop us, made us stronger.

Following workout, we tried our hand at a little Name That Tune (with a twist). Connecting with fellow RFG'ers, the group came up with most all of the songs and artists. (If you watch the facebook live video, you can find it starting around the 5:45 mark).

Our study time tonight focused on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. What is the gospel? What does it mean? Where did it come from? Can you share it? All of these are covered in unit 10 of your book, and are touched on in the fantastic video (link included below). This is a great week to reflect upon our problem (the sin of fallen mank), our broken solutions (works, morals, religion), His perfect solution (Jesus Christ, fully divine / fully human, paid the price for our sin), and our response (Romans 10:9 - Confess He is Lord, Believe He died, was buried, and raised = We will be saved).

Finally, some thoughts, tips, and suggestions for using or not using music when we run.

Have a great week - only two more Mondays!
