Run to Win

The Scriptures liken the Christian life to a race. "Do you not know that in a race all the runners compete, but only one receives the prize?" Paul wrote. "So run that you may obtain it." Marathon runners of today will train vigorously and push themselves relentlessly in order to achieve victory. Those who wish to receive the crown of righteousness can do no less. O that all of us would be able to say at the end of our earthly life: "I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award to me on that Day!"
