Alcatraz, an icon of hopelessness and isolation.
A prison where a rich and satisfying life is locked out by 50’ tall barbwire-topped walls, an intricate fail-safe security system, and surrounded by the freezing cold waters of the San Francisco Bay.
The Scriptures declare that we are all prisoners of our brokenness.
Everyone is faced with a choice; are you going to serve a life sentence? Or, are you going receive God’s promise of freedom by following Jesus Christ? (Galatians 3:22 )
It’s not easy, but you can…
Swim to win!
All athletes are disciplined in their training. They do it to win a prize that will fade away, but you do it for an eternal prize. So, swim with purpose through the water (Heart) with every breath (Soul), navigation (Mind), kick (Strength), and stroke (Loving Others). Discipline your body like an athlete, training it to do what it should.
Keep Pressing toward the Goal to claim the prize which Christ Jesus has already won for you. (Philippians 3:12)
The prize of a rich and satisfying life. (John 10:10)
Immersion: Live out the life God has envisioned for you.
