This Friday is for contemplating the weight of our sin. Our sin led to the sacrifice of the perfect Lamb of God. Our sin mocks God. Our sin convicts God. Our sin shouts out, “Crucify Him!”
Let us contemplate our sin, and even though we know the resurrection is coming, we cannot cheapen God’s grace by going on and continuing our sinful lives. When we look at the cross, at Jesus hanging with the weight of our sin, we should respond with WORSHIP and heed the words of Jesus, “Go and sin no more.”
I am often asked what describes you, which is a hard answer because sometimes I move in a thousand different directions. Some call me an engineer, others call me pastor, a few call me captain, some call me friend, others call me dad, and one calls me sweetheart. All of these things are descriptors and are accurate, but they don't fully capture me. My favorite place is in the mountains, enjoying the beauty of nature and God's creation, running and hiking around with my family and friends, and taking photos to cement the memories. However, the people that know me the best know that my favorite thing to do is come up with crazy adventures that push the limits of what our minds and bodies can do.
My faith in God is important to me and drives me to look at creation the way I do. Because of my faith, I look at these adventures and running races from Half Marathons all the way to 50-mile races, as well as several Obstacle Course Races, as an opportunity to push the body God gave me as an act of worship. Hopefully, someday soon, I look toward running longer races and bigger adventures. My hope is that humanity can understand that the wild is a gift, and we need to care for it and quit destroying it by the way we live.
