Exercise!



Walking can add minutes 
to your life. This enables
you at 85 years old to 
spend an additional 
55 months in a nursing 
home at $5000 per month.

The advantage of exercising 

every day is that you die
healthier.



You could run this over to your
friends but why not
just e-mail
it to them instead!

Police in Britain using a radar gun noted a reading of more than
300 mph, just before their equipment fried. Seconds later a low-
flying Harrier jet hurtled past. The police complained to the Royal
Air Force about the damage to their equipment, but the police
were told to consider themselves lucky. The Harrier's target-seeker
had locked onto the radar and triggered an automatic retaliatory
air-to-surface attack. Fortunately for the police, the Harrier was not
armed with missiles.

Here's a fuel cost calculator and it's just in time for summer
vacation! The American Automobile Association (AAA) has a Web page
that estimates how much it costs to drive from one city to the next.

Enter your starting city, destination and your car's year, make and
model. If your make and model isn't listed, you can enter your car's
average miles per gallon.

The distance, fuel consumption and price of fuel are estimated.
It can't give an exact number but it's great to use for a budget.

Over the years, two words that could really stir up some action at our house go like this, "Let's romp!" Yeah, uh-huh. You have to understand I was a father of two sons, and that meant that Dad is ready for some "rough housing" with one or maybe two sons. But I learned I had to be careful, because then one day they got to be my size. So I didn't say that much any more.

That was a key to a lot of fun, "Let's romp!" But when they were small, I would sort of antagonize them until they took after me. And they'd pursue me through the house. And much to my wife's dismay, I can hear her yelling three words, "Save the furniture!" Well, the boys would jump me; they'd make loud noises and growl and try to keep me down. Of course I acted real scared and I acted like I was almost beat, but it was no contest. They were after me, but they couldn't really hurt me. Just like some attackers who may be chasing you right now.

Our word for today from the Word of God comes from Exodus 14. It's a story about people who are being chased. They are the Jews who have just gotten out of Egypt. The Egyptians are not real happy that they've just lost their entire slave work force, so this familiar story finds the Egyptians pursuing them until the Israelites have their back up against the Red Sea. So the pursuers are people who used to be their masters. It's going to be important for you to remember that in just a minute.

Let's read from Exodus 14:23-25. "The Egyptians pursued them, and all of Pharaohs chariots and horsemen followed them into the sea. During the last watch of the night the Lord looked down from the pillar of fire and cloud at the Egyptian army and threw it into confusion. He made the wheels of the chariots come off so they had difficulty driving." (I guess you would.) "And the Egyptians said, 'Let's get away from the Israelites. The Lord is fighting for them against Egypt.'" And the rest is history, as the waters of the Red Sea swallowed the Egyptian army.

Now, we're looking, not just at a historical picture here; there's a spiritual picture. See, you and I used to be as slaves, but you are, if you know Christ, no longer a slave to something that used to own you--that used to control you. But I'll bet it's still chasing you. See, our old slave masters always pursue us. The difference is that you have Christ in control of that area in your life right now. You can say to that old slave master, "Hey, you can chase me, but you can't have me." Just like when my boys were little chasing me. Yeah, they could chase me, but they couldn't conquer me.

Think of what used to be your Egypt. Was it that habit that once mastered you? Was it that depressed way of thinking, or a temptation, a destructive attitude? Maybe it was a sexual sin, or an uncontrollable temper. It could have been a selfish way of getting your own way. But that was all B.C.--before Christ--before that came under the all-powerful lordship of a risen Christ.


But that old master hasn't given up has he? No, just like Pharaoh in the Old Testament, the old master's pursuing you right now, trying to bring you back to that old slavery. Well, you go to your new Master and once again you give Him that part of you that was the enslaved part of you. Turn Him loose to fight for you. You've lived in Egypt long enough; you don't ever have to go back to that slavery again. Oh, you'll be pursued, but in Christ you don't ever need to be a prisoner again.

You'll hear the noise of the chariots, you'll feel the pressure. But turn and face your enemy and tell him, "Because of Jesus, you can chase me, but you can't have me."
