Follow Along with the Message

As followers of Jesus, we are called to seek after an eternal crown through faithfully running the race God has set before us.


Running with Purpose means…


1. Running to      .

Just as competing athletes undergo strict training, we also are to train ourselves for our race. Spiritual disciplines or practices are means by which we train ourselves to run our race to win the prize.

James 1:12, “Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.”



Running with Purpose means…


2. Running in    . 

Paul is telling us that as we run our race to win, we cannot win the race without an aim or a target.

John Ortberg quotes William Paulsell in his book The Life You've Always Wanted: Spiritual Disciplines for Ordinary People, Paulsell said, “It is unlikely that we will deepen our relationship with God in a casual or haphazard manner.”

Paul wants all of us to finish our race well.
