Daily Challenge-Run With Purpose

July 27th, 2021 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Endurance, today’s Daily Challenge motivates us to run the race of faith with purpose.

Have you ever heard of an Olympic athlete who shows up at the games without training for their event?  In reality, each athlete has invested an enormous amount of time, energy, and training to fulfill their dream of representing their country, and to win a gold medal.

The Apostle Paul looked to the dedicated athlete and said to the church in so many words, “we can learn from their example as we apply it to the Christian life.”

He wrote in First Corinthians 9:24, “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.”

If we keep our focus on Jesus, He will give us incentive to run a good race with every step we take.

Take the daily challenge to run the race with purpose on the journey of faith.
