June 09, 2013
|In this message Pastor John is talks about the glory of God in Formula One racing. Where do you risk your life for God? When was the last time you took it to its limits? Have you ever really experienced the 'G' forces you were made to experience?
There is not a single square centimeter of a Ferarri F1 car that has escaped the closest examination in pursuit of either mechanical or aerodynamic perfection.”
Maurice Hamilton, Inside Ferrari, page 76
"There is not a square inch in the whole domain of our human existence over which Christ, who is Sovereign over all, does not cry, Mine!"
Abraham Kuyper, Dutch theologian.
“The performance of an F1 car is breathtaking in every sense. The driver can have the wind knocked out of him by acceleration that takes the car from 0 - 160 km/h (100 mph) in 3.5 seconds, and braking forces so violent that it requires less than 2 seconds and just 120 meters to go from 310 km/h (195 mph) to 95 km/h (60 mph). For lap after lap.”
Inside Ferrari, page 76
“Do you see what this means all these pioneers who blazed the way, all these veterans cheering us on? It means we’d better get on with it. Strip down, start running—and never quit! No extra spiritual fat, no parasitic sins. Keep your eyes on Jesus, who both began and finished this race we’re in. Study how he did it. Because he never lost sight of where he was headed—that exhilarating finish in and with God—he could put up with anything along the way: Cross, shame, whatever. And now he’s there, in the place of honor, right alongside God. When you find yourselves flagging in your faith, go over that story again, item by item, that long litany of hostility he plowed through. That will shoot adrenaline into your souls!”
Hebrews 12:1-3, MSG
“Auto racing began 5 minutes after the second car was built.”
“I am the Road, also the Truth, also the Life. No one gets to the Father apart from me. If you really knew me, you would know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him.
You’ve even seen him!”
Jesus in John 14:6, MSG
