Saturday – Open Topic
“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.”
1 Corinthians 9:24-27 NIV
The most popular sporting event in the United States is coming up next weekend. Players for the Chiefs and the Eagles have practiced their entire lives for this game. Their levels of discipline have been off the charts to prepare themselves for the Super Bowl.
The life changing opportunities in our lives are no less important than the Super Bowl.
For those we draw to Jesus, they are far more important.
For this reason, we would do well to discipline ourselves to train for the event of helping people find and follow Jesus.
In what ways do you discipline yourself for this life of following Jesus?
