In the earlier part of the 20thcentury, Eric Liddell was one of the greatest runners in the world. In addition to being a great athlete, Liddell would eventually move to China where he served as a missionary. Liddell bucked every trend of the day. Prior to running every race he would go down the line and shake the hand of every other man in the race. He would run every race flailing his arms with his face pointed to the sky. When Liddell was asked, “How can you see the finish line?” he would reply, “The Lord guides me.” He was also a man of strong conviction. In the 1924 Olympics Liddell gladly gave up what most consider to be a sure gold medal because of his refusal to run on Sunday. A few days later he ran the 400 meter race, which he was not expected to win. He crossed the line in record time. When asked why he ran, he replied, “I believe God made me for a purpose, but he also made me fast. And when I run I feel His pleasure.” The same should be true for all Christian workers. God has created each person with gifts to use for His glory.
