We are not on a short sprint to heaven, but a lifelong marathon. The Holy Spirit is like a champion runner who draws alongside us at the beginning of the race (John 14:15–27) and promises us that we will make it to the end (Ephesians 1:13–14). He will help, challenge and encourage us. There will be times when we lean on him. There will be times when he pushes us forward. But the whole time we must keep in step with him.
