Starting Line

Jesus’ birth is both the original starting line and the finishing line. Instead of striving for human glory, Jesus asks us to follow him instead.

Watch the first starting line to see history being made forever.

There is so much tension at starting lines: the preparation, predictions and pressure all come down to this one event. Will history be made? Who will get the glory?

Let’s rewind back to the birth of God’s Son. The nativity is not only the original starting line that kicks off the rescue of our world. It’s also the finishing line.

Jesus’ birth ends the striving for human glory. And he asks nothing of us but to come and follow him, as he runs the race before us.
