Monday Morning Chapel: Not a Jog, but a Race

Kent DelHousaye, senior pastor of Bethany Bible Church, spoke at one of the last Chapel services of the 2014-15 school year here at Grand Canyon University. He spoke about running. When we run a race, we are running toward something and away from something else.

He spoke about 2 Timothy 2:22. The word “flee” in this verse is the same word used for a fugitive running away from being captured. The apostle Paul instructs us through his letter to Timothy to flee from the things that would hold us back and chase after righteousness.

Run for your life, like a fugitive, away from immature indulgence (evil desires, false teaching, ignorance, foolishness, arguing and resentment) and toward pursuing mature righteousness (faith, love, peace, pure desires, biblical truth, kindness, gentleness and patience).

For those who are taking Chapel for credit, do not forget to turn in your Chapel reflection essay before the end of the semester.
