  1. This example of stopping on the treadmill- and going backwards- brings to mind teaching that we are going against the current (of the world) in this Christian life, and therefore if we stop rowing (or swimming) to go forward in it, we will immediately start going backwards- ie, backsliding. So to preserve our Christian growth and even just maintain, we always have to be working hard against that current, or be swept away by the world. How that flies in the face of Jesus' admonishment to rest! It doesn't produce growth, it produces wore out Christians who feel condemned- I know it did in me. So happy to be off the treadmill where I can sit at Jesus' feet! :)
