A Three-Legged Race

I've been inspired by the series, In Pursuit of Jesus: Discipled by Jesus at Discover the Word, in which Robert Gelinas compares our life with Christ to a three-legged race, instead of a relay race. When Jesus gave the great commission (Matthew 28:19-20), He didn't give His disciples the baton and retire, but invited them to run a three-legged race with Him. The great commision is, in fact, the great COMmission.

Their discussion reminds me that a Christian is someone who is running a three-legged race with Jesus every day. I imagine myself running a three-legged race with Jesus, whatever I am doing. The cord that ties our legs together is the love of Jesus, which truly sets me free from the bondage of sin.
