Dropping the Baton

Dropping the Baton

Jesus has gone before us, showing the way, offering Himself as a sacrifice and servant to bring us life. His Spirit empowers us to live a Jesus-like life of selfless service. As we draw on His living presence, we take up the baton to pass along the call and privilege of following Him. Make no mistake, the lives we live matter. It is our privilege and responsibility to pass on Jesus’ mandate to serve one another, in His name and for His cause. Run well today, don’t drop the baton!

Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. -1 Corinthians 9:24

Prayer: Jesus, may we firmly grasp the baton of faith, and run in Your footsteps, pressing forward in selflessness, pouring ourselves out on Your behalf. May others be inspired to run the race because of us. We pray in Your Name, amen.
