There’s a line from Chariots of Fire, “When I run I feel His pleasure.” I’ve heard it mentioned in sermons. You know what? I think that line has done me a disservice in life. Is that bold? I dunno, I was just reading something the other day and it was reminding how in Scripture spiritual gifts are always discussed in the context of how they can be used to serve others. That’s always the primary thing. Personal pleasure is a far less significant consideration. Maybe not irrelevant, but definitely not key.
So yeah, I honestly think that line has confused me spiritually. But I dunno, still stuff I’m thinking about.
