The Olympic games represent a grand tradition held globally by each country that
participates. It's a time when all differences are put aside and we join to compete
and cheer on our country. The ceremony of the torch was actually a race the
Greeks had in the original Olympics. Except, it wasn't a race to see who finished
first. No, the winner was the one who finished with his torch still lit! - a race of
perseverance. In our lives as Christians, we should strive to finish with our torch
still lit. Today on Bridging the Gap we come to Hebrews chapter eleven verses
thirty two through thirty four, looking at the great men of faith in the bible.
