First, Chris shares this lessons from a man who runs ultramarathons (longer than a marathon):
As a running buddy once said to me: Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming: ‘WOW! What a ride!’
Next, Chris compares this to a life of following Christ. He mentions several passages of Scripture that encourage us to live our life completely for Christ. He ends with this:
When we see our Lord and Savior face to face, let all who see Him fall into His strong loving arms because we are worn out and used up because we lived our lives for Him and His purposes.
What a great encouragement and admonition!
