RUNNING THE RACE!
When it comes to running a race, two questions come to mind. How FAST! and how FAR! Speed and distance are the two major components that make one race different from another and one participants results differ from another.
Here at Our Savior Lutheran we exist for the purpose of supporting and encouraging “runners” in the race of faith.
When it comes to distance, the race of faith is a marathon lasting one’s whole life. Instead of one’s speed being a factor, it is the way that one runs that matters. The Bible tells us to”look to Jesus” as the way to run this race.
Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses,
let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely,
and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,
looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith,
who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame,
and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.
Here at OSL we want to be a partner in running the race with you! You are surrounded by a great cheering section at OSL.
Together we gather to pursue the best God has to give for the life of the body, mind and spirit! Remembering that this race of faith is a RELAY RACE! Jesus has already crossed the finish line to make winners out of us all! Our mission is to keep passing the baton of faith and love as we reach out to our neighbors day by day.
I encourage you to be strengthened for the race of faith by attending worship and studying God's Word regularly.
In Christ’s service,
