Running The Race
Teammates know the perseverance and determination that is required to win their sport and attain the prize. Each person of the team must set their sight on the goal and follow the game plan. They cheer one another on to press forward when it is difficult. In the last half of Philippians 3, Paul aptly compares the Christian’s life to running a race. Although this comparison is 2000 years old, it is deep and practical for our lives today.
