When you are running toward Christ, you are freed up to serve, love, & give thanks without guilt, worry, or fear. As long as you are running, you are safe.
But running is exhausting – if, that is, we are running from sin or guilt, out of fear. (Or if we haven’t run in a while.) However, if we train ourselves to run toward our Refuge, toward Love, we are free – just as we are called to be.
