Running The Race

May 23, 2021 / 1 Corinthians 9:24-27 1 Corinthians 9:19-23

Uncritical Living + Selfish Freedom = Undermining of the Gospel

QUESTION: How do I share in the Gospel’s Blessings?

v.24 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. 

v.25 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.

v. 26 Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly;  I do not fight like a boxer beating the air.

v.27 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.

  • We run because
  • Because we
  • And our is worth any
