“Running The Race – Train Well”

1 Corinthians 9:24-27

24 Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize?  So run, that ye may obtain.

25 And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things.  Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.

26 I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air:

27 But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection:  lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.

KJV

The Need for Self-Discipline

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

NIV
  1. If you have wealth, share it
  2. If you have position, honor it
  3. If you have power, don’t abuse it
