Lyn posted this video on her blog Saved by Grace. The video is by Carter Conlon. I haven't heard him preach before, and from Lyn's comment I perceive that perhaps his preaching isn't always on target. But he is very on target on this video. He mentions how some of the heroes of 9/11 ran into harms way, to their deaths, to warn others about the danger, to try to help them escape, not thinking about the risk to their own life and safety. That runs counter to our flesh. We want to run away from danger, and run to what makes us feel good, gratifies our egos and our flesh. That is not of the Lord. That is of the flesh, and we are to run away from the lusts of the flesh, and it's many various temptations.

This is what Carter Conlon said the first Sunday following the September 11, 2001 tragedy:

We do not run because we fear, we run to meet Jesus, we run to help others no matter the cost, we run the good race to finish it well.

1Co 9:24  Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.
1Co 9:25  And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.
1Co 9:26  I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air:
1Co 9:27  But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.
