1 Corinthians 9:24-27 - David Olshine (3/18/18)

Marathon Miracle
 
Everybody wants to be known for something. What do you want to be known for?

BIG IDEA: 

Jesus-centered life isn’t a  _______________, rather a marathon. Therefore isn’t about _______________ - It’s about endurance.

1.The marathon   _______________ (v 24) “I run to win.”

2.The marathon _______________    (v 25)

  “Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training” (verse 25)

3.The marathon _______________ “I myself will not be disqualified for the prize” (v 27)

“Run with perseverance the race that is set before us….Fixing our eyes on Jesus who endured the cross…who endured such opposition.”  (Hebrews 12:3)

“I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me in Christ Jesus.’’ (Philippians 3:14)

TAKE AWAY: 

Ever felt like quitting? Throwing in the towel? Felt disqualified? What if I have no motivation to start? Where have I stopped running? Where do you need sustainability? Pick one area of your life that needs a kick-start…
