This was to save money on groceries and also ensure we were eating lean, healthy meat. One year I decided to save even more by processing the deer myself. Unbeknownst to me, the muzzleloader season that year would be the coldest of the winter, and I would acquire the deer on the coldest day. It froze solid and in order to thaw it out, I had to bring it to our basement to process it. My wife puts up with an awful lot. The process was messy to say the least. Trying to clean up blood is an extremely challenging pro- cedure, especially with “blood on your hands.” This very vivid phrase is sometimes used to describe guilt. The Carnton House is a historic home in Franklin, Tennessee, just North of Huntsville, Alabama. The main house was used as a hospital during the battle of Franklin in the Civil War. There is an eye- opening fact about this time capsule to a much more disturbing time. The original floors still have blood stains from the thousands of soldiers who stayed there. Many came in one door of the house and left an- other to become one of the occupants of the 1500 grave cemetery on the property. To compare guilt to this picture causes me to shudder. Is guilt really like this? Isaiah said, “...but your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God, and your sins have hidden His face from you so that He does not hear. For your hands are defiled with blood and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies; your tongue mutters wickedness” (Isaiah 59:2-3) Sin cuts us off from God. Isaiah is saying that iniquity literally leaves us with blood on our hands. Your sin and my sin leaves us hopelessly lost. Is this the end of the story? Is this the conclusion of the matter? Maybe you noticed the passage began in the middle of a thought. The first part of this passage leaves us with hope. It leaves us with a way to have the bloodguilt washed off of our hands. “Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save, or his ear dull, that it cannot hear” (Isaiah 59:1). The Lord’s hand is able to save you. The Lord’s hand can wipe away the guilt. It just so happens that the Lord’s hand has already gone through the process to provide you and I with cleansing. He gave us a way to re- move the guilt. The Lord’s hand was nailed to a cross where He shed His own blood to remove our guilt. “This is the message we have heard from Him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say we have fellowship with Him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not prac- tice the truth. But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin” (1 John 1:4-7). When you think of the picture of the bloodshed at Carnton House, it’s a gruesome picture that can still be seen today. Over two thousand years ago, the blood that was shed at the cross can still be accessed today. The blood on His hands cleanses the blood on our hands. By Richard Harp

He was, if I remember correctly, a member of the church at that time. In 1964 as a sophomore in high school, he ran the mile race in 3:59, the first time that any high school student had run a sub four-minute mile. Two years later, he set the world record for the mile at 3:51.3. He would eventually break this record as well as the world record for the 1500 meters at 3:33. Jim Ryun’s greatest goal as an athlete was to win the gold medal in the Olympic Games, but it was never to be. In 1972 he was in contention when he and another runner bump into each other and both went down. The other runner stood up and walked off the track, realizing he had no chance to catch the oth- ers now. Jim stood up, realizing the same thing, but once he was sure that he was not hurt, he began to run after the others. He finished last. His goal, for this life, was unrealized. He retired in 1976. Why did he continue the race when he knew he could never catch the others? Because he knew that while he could not win, he could finish. This was what he had trained for and he would not just give up and quit. I think that perhaps that was Jim’s greatest victory in athletics. We are all called upon as Christians to “run with patience the race that is set before us” (Heb. 12:1). The word translated as “race” is agona from which we get out word “agony.” Thus the race we are called upon to run is such that some would be likely to faint along the way or give up the race altogether. Brother Coffman says that “It means endurance and the power of perseverance, including the ability to fin- ish what is begun.” Paul’s concern in life was not about his impris- onment, or that he might be in afflictions wherever he went, but only that he “might finish my course with joy” (Acts 20:24). Paul spoke of his life as a Christian as a race that would last as long as his life lasted. Thus it was important that he finish that course with joy and the only way to do that would be to remain faithful in his service to God. Later when Paul was a prisoner in Rome, he wrote to Timothy saying. “For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. 7 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith” (II Tim. 4:6, 7). The remarkable thing about this race is that the reward is not only for one person but for all who run the race lawfully and to the end. Paul finished his course and thus will receive the crown of right- eousness. Let us as God’s children follow the example of Paul and run our race with patience to the end. For all who do that, it will be the greatest victory of their life. How do you make communion bread?
