Scripture: Hebrews 12:1-2
Published: "Runner finishes marathon by mistake" by Kristi Umbreit, AP Sports Writer, published in the PRESCOTT COURIER, et al, May 22, 1990

In 1990, Georgene Johnson of Cleveland, Ohio, was a bit depressed after turning 42. She decided that she wanted to be in better shape for the second half of her life. So, Georgene began exercising, then jogging, then running. She decided that what she really needed was a goal on which to focus, so she entered herself in a 10K (6 mile) race and began training.

The day of the race she was pumped and ready to go. She arrived early and was soon distracted by all the other runners as they prepped and stretched. Before you knew it, the horn sounded for the runners to line up, and Georgene followed the pack to the starting line, and they were off!

Four miles into the race, with no turnaround in sight, Georgene asked a fellow runner when they could expect to start heading back. "He just kind of looked at me strangely like, 'Are you for real?'" It was then that she realized she was not in the 10K race at all. She was in the Cleveland Marathon!

Both races shared the same finish line, but the 10K was set to start 15 minutes after the marathon. Because she was early (and distracted), she lined up too soon. So she just kept running, looking for someone to help.

Twenty-six miles later, she crossed the finish line. Her previous longest race was just 8 miles. It is reported that when asked what went through her mind as she faced the challenge, she replied, "This is not the race I trained for. This is not the race I entered. But for better or worse, this is the race that I am in."


Application:

No doubt, there will be moments when you find yourself a bit overwhelmed by your circumstances. It won't be a race you've trained for, it won't not be a race you've entered, but it will be the race your in. At that point you will have to decide what your going to do. The author of Hebrews offers this advice:

"Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God" (Hebrews 12:1-2).

Scripture: Hebrews 12:2
Published: Fresh Illustrations for Preaching & Teaching

On day six of the ill-fated mission of Apollo 13, the astronauts needed to make a critical course correction. If they failed, they might never return to Earth.

To conserve power, they shut down the onboard computer that steered the craft. Yet the astronauts needed to conduct a thirty-nine-second burn of the main engines. With no computer to guide them, they needed to come up with a way to stay on course during the burn. Astronaut Jim Lovell determined that if they could keep a fixed point in space in view through their tiny window, they could steer the craft manually. That focal point turned out to be their destination--Earth.

As shown in 1995's hit movie, Apollo 13, for thirty-nine agonizing seconds, Lovell focused on keeping the earth in view. By not losing sight of that reference point, the three astronauts avoided disaster.


Application:

Scripture reminds us that to finish our life mission successfully, we must fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith (Hebrews 12:2).

In the movie Jerry Maguire, the character Jerry Maguire (played by Tom Cruise) is a sports agent who loses his job because he had a change of heart about how his agency should be doing business. Only one of his clients stays with him when he sets out on his own: Rod Tidwell (played by Cuba Gooding Jr.). Rod is a talented football player, but his cocky attitude and love for money – instead of the game – has turned him into a liability in the eyes of most potential employers. Jerry is trying to negotiate on his behalf to land him the big contract he’s looking for, but Tidwell’s attitude is undermining his efforts. In a pivotal scene, Jerry breaks down and pleads with Rod to be more cooperative.

“Help me. Help me Rod!” Jerry pleads. “Help me help you. Help me…help you. Help me…help you!


Application:

Sometimes we’re just like Rod Tidwell. We have our own idea of what’s good for us. We have selfish desires and ambitions, and we stubbornly insist on pursuing them in our own way, even though we have an advocate who knows a better way. God pleads with us throughout Scripture to stop undermining ourselves, to let Him lead us on a path of higher purpose. Like Jerry Maguire, He’s begging us to help Him help us. Until we surrender our will to His, we’ll be just like Rod Tidwell – confidently strutting down a path of self destruction.
