Run to Get the Prize

Bill Wilson

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.

• Winning in life requires pursuing God's purpose for your life.

• Run with daily disciplines of prayer, Bible reading, and service.

• Practice what you preach.

Father, I thank you for giving me a purpose and plan for my life.

Help me run the race set before me.
Help me to practice what I preach.
Help me to not get distracted by temptations or trails.

I will stay the course and not get sidetracked.
In Jesus Name, Amen!
