CHRISTIAN RACE

Philippians 3:14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

The Scene: A runner straining toward the goal. The hurdles symbolize life’s troubles and problems, that the runner has to overcome in order to reach the goal, the crown-shaped finish line banner*.

  • His banner over me is love…..

Hebrews 12:1 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.

2 Timothy 4:8 Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award me on that day–and not only me, but also all who have longed for his appearing.

The Apostle Paul is expressing the Lord’s desire for Christians to press on in their Christian race with enthusiasm and zest.

Proverbs 3:5-6  Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
