No this isn't a Nike commercial. But it does have something to do with the race we run. There was an interesting parable recorded in Luke 18 about the widow who constantly badgered the unjust judge for what she needed. The parallel was obvious, but most readers of that story probably don't notice the brief comment Jesus made at the end of that parable. It easily could have been an instinctive knee-jerk reaction, spoken out loud.
"...when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on earth?"
The parable was primarily about how much our Father in heaven loves us and will care for us. But Jesus' afterthought belies something more subtly intertwined. Our persistent and consistent conversation (prayer) with our Best Friend on Whom we totally depend and lean on (faith).
When He comes, let's be sure we're still engaging in conversation and depending on Him.
