Go for the Gold is a series about running the race of faith with perseverance. August 5th marks the opening of the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio, Brazil. The Olympics always bring images of athletes standing on the podium, emotionally clutching a gold medal as their national anthem is played. It is an image which brings home the honor, the pride, the hard work and all the effort which it took to get to that place. This series will help us see our own lives in Jesus as something worth running with honor. Training, running, sometimes stumbling … but all the time striving for the best relationship with Jesus. And why? Because even as great as an Olympic gold medal is, we know the “gold” of life with Jesus is far greater!
