The Races

Posted: July 6, 2014 in The Races

Watching a bike race from the side of the road is quite an experience. The actual time that the riders pass by is a few seconds, but waiting for hours beforehand is good and the people that gather are in a happy mood.

Many were dressed for taking part in the race. Lycra- clad and wearing rainbow glasses for sports events, looking just like the competitors on the road. But, of course, they were not really in the race at all. They just look the part and have easily blended in wearing their bike gear.

We can be like that too- just looking like we are Christians and trying to live the life as best we can. But it is only surface, only spiritual Lycra, that doesn’t affect our inner person. God sees and knows who are really his people, and we need to be sure we are true and our faith goes further than our outward behaviour.

Get in the race- for real…
