Winning the Race

This week's message is Winning the Race. Choose your connection speed to listen: dialup - broadband - transcript

The Race

Did you know we're in a race? Not a race to compete with one another. Not a race for self-glory. Not a race for an earthly prize. But a spiritual race, a higher calling, a race for the prize of a crown that will not lose its value with time.

Today we talk about the race Paul mentioned when he said, "...lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified," and ponder how this relates to our lives and how we can win the spiritual race we are all called to run.

How to Win

Fellowship - click to enlarge

Throughout the Scriptures, we are called beyond "good enough" to excellence. We are not instructed to just begin the race, but we are told me must finish it, and finish it well.

Today we talk about four important parts of winning the race:

1. Training
2. Running
3. Staying on the Path, and
4. Finishing the Race

If we're going to run the race at all, we must run to win. No one wins a marathon who doesn't get in shape and train. Our spiritual race is a marathon, and God expects us to train, get in shape, and run to win. And as we run with all we have, others will follow.

Prayer Requests & Praise Reports

Difficult Choice – Jim writes, Pray for me and my family. I am making a choice that is really hard for me to make, and that God will give me the strength to keep doing his will and be able to win souls for him and that he will keep us safe in our travels.

Prayer for Strength – Karene writes, It has been a long time since I have written. Things around here have been stressful to say the least. My son Steven has been moved from a larger facility to a group home that has been chosen by the courts. He still has to finish his sex offender program and right now he is not wanting to do it because he says he doesn't understand the material he has to do. And he needs alot of prayer that the Lord will be with him to help him get through this program. And prayer is needed for our family as well it has been a difficult a little over 4 years now since Steven was arrested. For the last 3 months I have been suffering from extreme fatigue. It's a combination of things stress, medication I take, I have a thyroid problem, plus I suffer from three pain conditions. I am hoping and praying that my doctors have some answers for me. But my most of all that God the ultimate healer if it is His will to heal me of this fatigue so I can function better. I am trying to keep strong in my faith during this difficult time and not give in to worry and to believe that things in my life are going to be alright. Blessings to you!

Pray For Us! Please pray that God will continue to move through this ministry in an even greater measure. Without your prayers, our labor will not have much effect. But when the work of the ministry is backed by prayer, great things will happen!

Visit our prayer center to post requests or pray for those who daily request prayer. If you wish to be a prayer partner and have the requests e-mailed to you, contact us.
