The Race Is On
Synopsis: The Race Is On! Now is not too late to ask the question, Are you running away from something or are you running toward something? It is NOT just a matter of perspective. It is a matter of focus. You can joke about it all you want but it does matter in the race of life.
Paul used the races and athletes of the Olympic Games as metaphors for life. He was not the only New Testament writer to do so. The Preacher in Hebrews 12:1-4 drew heavily on the metaphor to drive home the importance of running with the right focus. He said believers were to keep their eyes on Jesus. Believers are not to be focused on running away, but rather running toward the finish line in heaven always focused on Jesus who successfully ran the race ahead of all believers.
Scripture Text (NLT): Hebrews 12:1-4
