What Are You Running To?
“Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted” (Galatians 6:1)
I read that each morning in Africa a gazelle wakes up and says to himself, “If I cannot outrun the fastest lion on these plains today, I will be devoured.” And somewhere that same morning, a lion wakes up and says, “If I cannot outrun the slowest gazelle today, I will starve.” So they run.
Every morning you and I need to wake up running because we are running from sin, and Satan is running after us.
You know the difference between my life before I was saved and after? Before I got saved, I was running to sin, but now I’m running from sin. But sometimes we are overtaken by sin, and the Bible tells us to “restore one other.”
Do you know a brother or sister in Christ who’s been running toward sin—and walked away from the faith? Ask the Lord how He might use you and other believers to “restore such a one.” We who are Christians are to be in the restoration and reclamation business!
