FRIDAY, JANUARY 18TH 1 Corinthians 9:24-27

by: Pete Southall

“Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.  Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever.  Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like a boxer beating the air.  No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.”

RUN!!!!!! Did you know that the life of a Christ follower cannot be a passive life? Have you ever heard the phrase “casual Christian?” Unfortunately, I have. It’s the product of a culture that doesn’t understand that Paul’s exhortation to “run” is not a suggestion, rather it is a COMMAND! Every day, we are commanded to run the race; to be ACTIVE participants in the progress of the Kingdom of God. So, let’s all lace ’em up and hit the ground running every day. He has commanded it. He deserves our best efforts!!
