Journey with Jesus and those who follow him

God Running is a place for anyone who wants to (or even anyone who wants to want to) love Jesus more deeply, follow Jesus more closely, and love people the way Jesus wants us to.

Sunday morning my pastor told the story of how he and two younger friends went for a run on wildwood trail in the hills near Portland. At about the nine mile mark he started to fade badly. But his friends encouraged him and he was able to finish the final three miles. He said, he doesn’t think he would have made it if it weren’t for those friends who were with him on the journey.

That’s how I feel about the Jesus followers I’ve surrounded myself with. Pretty sure I wouldn’t make it without their presence and help and encouragement. I can’t imagine being on this journey without them.

Can I give you my best advice? If you’re not already connected with people who love Jesus with everything they have, friends who stick closer than a brother, do whatever you need to do to make that happen. (Proverbs 18:24)
