Running the Race
Some verses to think of while watching this video: [I don't agree with everything in it--we have to careful of the modern movies, but want to emphasize "running the race" as a Christian and how important it is]:
1Cr 9:24 Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.
Hbr 12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset [us], and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
One thing we must remember as Christians is this world is going to bring tribulation, many Christians now are dying for the gospel, while others are suffering smaller sacrifices. We need to persevere in the Lord.
Eph 6:18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
This video is a good reminder of what it is like for the Christian in the race of life. Remember this life is short when compared to eternity. A Christian's hope is in their life with God not the things of this world. We will feel beaten and battered at times. Turn to the Holy Spirit for help on your way.
