Unlike most races, our spiritual race is not about coming in first. It’s about finishing. If we don’t give up, if we don’t quit, then we win. Even if we have made mistakes, fallen down, or fallen behind, we can get up again and still finish well. God’s grace allows us to finish well. God empowers us, just like Derek Redmond’s dad empowered him in his race: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t2G8KVzTwfw.
