The Bible compares the Christian life to a foot race. We need to understand, it is more like a marathon than a sprint, and as Christians, we need to finish the race well.
> How do we run the race well? By running hard to the end!
Commitment, Sacrifice, Rearranging our priorities not just giving our spare time/
We must be ALL in!
> Why do we run the race well?
Because we love our Savior! Romans 5:8
Because we do not want to be disqualified! I Corinthians 9:24-27
Because we will receive a reward! 2 Timothy 4:6-8
> What is the basis for race rewards? FAITHFULNESS! I Corinthians 4:1-2
> Who decides who gets what rewards? JESUS CHRIST! 2 Corinthians 5:10
