1 Cor. 9:24-27
Don’t you realize that in a race everyone runs, but only one person gets the prize? So run to win! 25 All athletes are disciplined in their training. They do it to win a prize that will fade away, but we do it for an eternal prize. 26 So I run with purpose in every step. I am not just shadowboxing. 27 I discipline my body like an athlete, training it to do what it should. Otherwise, I fear that after preaching to others I myself might be disqualified.
WE ARE RUNNING THE RACE TO WIN, NOT LOSE!
God has told us that we are to CHAMPION this race, and Jesus has given us everything we need to accomplish the VICTORY!
We CANNOT LOSE unless we are not PURPOSED or DISCIPLINED.
There is a horrible plot that has unravelled in American churches. The average person only goes to church once a month. Most of American Christians are on a 3 week rotation because they have other things that are more important than the invitation of the King to come to His House every week and eat from His table.
We have so many other priorities in our lives. I know families who take the summer off to “camp” while others cannot come because their children have “sports.” I actually have had adults says they could not come because they were afraid of thunder and lightning…lol.
UNDISCIPLINED PEOPLE PRODUCE NO RESULTS. They start running the race but are swallowed up with fatigue because they never took the race seriously.
No results in your walk with Christ? ASK YOURSELF IF YOU ARE PURPOSED and DISCIPLINED! Even Paul said, “Otherwise, I fear that after preaching to others I myself might be disqualified.”
