Running the Race 

Are you the athletic type or do you prefer armchair sports viewing? Either
way, if you are a sports enthusiast  you understand the focus and sacrifice required by athletes to compete and win. It takes training, constant
practice, energy, and unrelenting determination to endure to
the point of victory. 

The same holds true for running the Christian race. In order to run the race you will need energy, commitment, perseverance, and mental fitness. It is not always
easy or fun. Sacrifice and persistence are required. The rewards for running the race, however, far exceed anything you could imagine. Have you the stamina, and determination to make it to the finish line? Don't give up and never give in. The race is challenging but you can finish in style as long as you stay on track. Don't worry. Jesus Christ is your personal coach. He will be right beside you all the way and will even cheer you on. 
Ready? Set?
Okay, off you go!

I have competed well; I have finished the race; I have kept the faith! 2 Timothy 4:7
