“…there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” Luke 15:10
If you could be a part of a movement that changes the lives of others simply by sharing the love of Jesus Christ, would you? What if I said you already were, would you believe me? Well, you are. If you are reading this email, then you are a part of the Run for God family, and our mission is to share the love of Jesus Christ through the sport of running.
So how do we do this? For starters, we have two entire chapters in The 5K Challenge, which has been taught in thousands of churches and communities, devoted to clearly sharing the Gospel of Christ. We pose the question from Matthew 16:15 “Who do you say that I AM? – Jesus” in Runner’s World Magazine and prompt individuals to visit www.RunforGod.com/PeacewithGod where they can find out how to have peace of their own. We encourage everyone we come in contact with to tell others that God Loves Them! We at Run for God are ACTIVELY sharing Jesus Christ.
Yes, we promote the Gospel at Run for God, but it wouldn’t be possible without you. Keeping the platform that God has entrusted us with, takes more than just our staff. It takes people who are willing to buy The 5K Challenge, Books and T-shirts. It takes people who are willing to support us financially. It takes an army of people who are willing to pray for us and this ministry. It takes people who are willing to sign up and run our races. Yes, God has put you in our path for a reason.
A while back I started sending a simple text to our Run for God Board of Directors. I call this text a God wink. Each time someone reached out to us and let us know that they had either accepted Christ as their personal Lord and Savior, or they had rededicated their life to Christ as a result of what God is doing through Run for God, I’d send this simple text. No words, no explanation, no need for a response, nothing but a simple smiley face emoji with a halo over it’s head. We simply rejoiced together without saying a word.
Recently God laid it on my heart that I should give everyone who is a part of Run for God to be a part of these God winks. So that’s what we are doing. If you’d like to be a part of this, simply sign up by following the directions on the graphic.
Thank you once again for being a part of Run for God! You are the hands and feet of this ministry.
