“Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it.” I Corinthians 9:24 NKJV
There is nothing better than knowing that all your hard work has paid off when you come across the finish line finishing first and winning the big prize! But when it comes to running this race called life, we don’t need to finish first! We just need to run the race so that we may obtain the prize! The prize that’s in Christ! A much better prize than any prize we could ever win here on earth! A prize of eternal life in Heaven!
So how do we run in such a way that we may obtain it? How do we win the big prize? We Practice! Practice! Practice! And we learn to win by following the master! We follow in the footsteps of Jesus!
“let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:1-2 NKJV
So dust off that bible and get into God’s word!
You can do this!
Love in Christ
