Consider the words of Paul in 1 Corinthians 9:24-27. He speaks to believers who, whether they know it or not, are in a race. A race to receive, not a consolation prize, but to win the prize! However, the only way to be competitive in this race is to be disciplined in preparation for it! Paul gives us a peek into his walk with Christ to ultimately show us what it takes to be successful in our own walk. In times such as these, we must be equipped to run our race! In doing so, we will see the entire body of Christ doing its share, ultimately leading to growth. This is how we all win the race and achieve the imperishable prize that God will award us. It's time to RUN YOUR RACE!
