Why we don't give up! 1 Corinthians 9:24-27

Good morning to all,
The Christian life was never promised to be easy but with perseverance and persistence,  the final prize can be yours!  1 Corinthians 9:24-27 says, "Remember that in a race everyone runs, but only one person gets the prize.  You also must run in such a way that you will win.  All athletes practice strict self-control.  They do it to win a prize that will fade away, but we do it for an eternal prize.  So I run straight to the goal with purpose in every step.  I am not like a boxer who misses his punches.  I discipline my body like an athlete, training it to do what it should.  Otherwise, I fear that after preaching to others I myself might be disqualified."  The purpose of our Christian life is to run to get the prize and not be distracted along the way; run straight to the goal!  The plan is to practice strict self-control by reading the word, to dine with the Savior regularly and to let the Holy Spirit direct your path!  The prize is an eternal prize that is everlasting life with the Father!  If you feel like giving up, shout out to the One who can give you new perspective and the fight that it takes to endure!  May God richly Bless your day as you receive your direction from the One who created you!
Your brother in Christ,
