By Alex Dias Ribeiro. Life is a race. From the starting line, all of us are part of this race. It isn’t a circuit like Monza, Silverstone or Monaco, which characteristics we already know well. It’s a much more difficult circuit, as we never know whether the next curve will be to the left or right.
In The GP of Life, we are subject to the same alternatives offered in any race: Sensational overtakings, spins, accidents, joy, sorrow, great victories or tragedies.
„Races are races“. The only certain thing in motor racing is uncertainty. In the race of life, the only sure thing is the inevitable and sad fact that one day all of us will die. Death is the checkered flag of the race of life and we can only finish winners or losers. There are no intermediate positions.
The reality of the matter is that each person carries inside himself the profound, sad emptiness of defeat. But you can win this race and gain perfect love and constant peace, like you’ve never known before. However, you’ll have to choose the right team and the right track.
You will never find the way that leads to victory by yourself. Without help, you’ll be racing in the dark, no headlights, no brakes and lost as a blind man in the middle of a shootout!
There is only one who will surely and safely take you to victory: Jesus Christ.
He grants: „I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father but by me.“ He is the only track that leads to peace, happiness and eternal life.
Come this way, without fear or resistance, and soon you will see the signs that will lead you to the checkered flag of victory. Win with Christ the GP of Life!
See you next Friday. - God bless you, all the best! The Castiron
