Whether or not you like to run or consider yourself a runner, Christians are a lot like runners.
Whenever we're involved in a faith enterprise, were overextended by divine design. That's what faith involves. Faith is a response of obedience to an impossible request. Just try inviting 5,000 people to a meal prepared from a kid's lunch box. We must abandon ourselves to God's adequacy and trust him for enablement. It's an interesting paradox. We are weak when we are strong, and strong when we are weak.
Just another reason why I love running so much.
