Do you want to help change the world? Most of us want to be a positive force in this world. We are passionate about our causes; we spend our free time doing the things that make us feel alive.
After I bike 297 miles in one week of this summer's Fuller Center Bicycle Adventure, hopefully I'll still feel alive! I'll definitely be changing the world.
I want you to be a part of this journey — without all the aches and pains it's going to take for this old boy to tackle a new challenge. I'll explain how you can do that, but first let me explain why I'm going to whip myself into shape — as opposed to a shape — before summer comes.
My faith is my motivator. Philippians 3:13, 14, "Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus."
What does this passage mean to you? I used to only look at scripture through the prism of my own selfish salvation. What this passage said to me was I need to get to heaven and not let anything cause me to stumble along the way. But that is not entirely what this passage is saying.
