Do you know that in a race all runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way 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. – 1 Corinthians 9:24-25
Want a strong and healthy body, let’s exercise! Joining a sports activity like basketball, football, we practice hard to have a good and competitive gameplay and win the game.
Same thing with our faith. Being a Christian is not just sitting down, relaxing, watching the birds flying in the blue skies, having a cold drink and feel the cold breeze. Our Christian life is like a race and we aim to get the prize, the crown of glory, which last forever. But it’s not just a simple race, we need to undergo strict training and the best training guide to prepare us in the race is the bible which gives us the best training recipe to achieve victory. And God is our coach, let’s talk to Him through prayers and we can get more advices from Him and He will also run with us during our race.
