The Christian Olympics Marathon

For many years it has been the Olympic Games that had the attention of the whole world for two weeks. But the corona virus pandemic came on the scene front and center which was the knock out punch postponing the 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics.

The 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics that were supposed to begin this Friday July 24.2020 . But instead, this Friday,July 24, we are going to have a week of non stop postings on Facebook of what we envision when we watch the Olympic Games. What aspect of the games inspire you? Is it the unity of people getting together from all over the world? Does the training and discipline motivate you? What about the sports?Is there a particular sport that you can relate to?

How about the suffering?.

Let's post,have fun and there will also be Surprises and Free Giveaways.
Hopefully we will enjoy this so much that this Marathon will last to August 9, 2020 like the Olympic Games.

Start posting beginning Friday July 24-31 at https://www.facebook.com/events/1361231897414382/

                  God's Grace For The Paralympians


The Paralympic Games are a multi-sport event with athletes with various ranges of disabilities, including impaired muscle power (paraplegia andquadriplegiamuscular dystrophypost-polio syndromespina bifida), impaired passive range of movement, limb deficiency (amputation or dysmelia), leg length difference, short staturehypertoniaataxiaathetosisvision impairment and intellectual impairment. There are Winter and Summer Paralympic Games, are held immediately following the Olympic Games.

This year the 2016 Rio Paralympics opening ceremony began on September 8,2016 and closing ceremony on September 18,2016. And the closing ceremony was dedicated to the Iranian Para-cyclist Bahman Golbarnezhad  who was killed while competiting.

Despite any disability,these athletes displayed miraculous talent to win the gold,silver and bronze medals.Even for those that did not win any medals.

Although Paralympic Games are separate from the Olympic Games, the Christian Olympics have no such separation. Every Christian whether they are disabled, have a sickness, a handicap, and/or any type of infirmity and weakness or have the best of health and no disabilities participate in the Christian Olympics.
In The Christian Olympics:Going for the Gold Crowns, the Apostle Paul, who compared the Christian life to the Olympic Games, had an infirmity that he called a “thorn in the flesh.” The Bible does not say what is was, but it bothered Paul enough to ask God to remove it from him three times. Though Paul’s request was not granted, God gave him something better than removing the infirmity, God gave Paul His grace to replace his weakness(
2 Cor.12:9)
 This grace was God’s divine strength that enabled Paul, in spite of his infirmity, to finish his race and receive crowns of gold. Read about the different crowns that he won in The Christian Olympics:Going for the Gold Crowns by S.E.Gregg
