Run Your Race
John 20:2-4, 6a, 8a NIV
So she [Mary] came running to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one Jesus loved, and said, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we don’t know where they have put him!” So Peter and the other disciple started for the tomb. Both were running, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first. Then Simon Peter came along behind him and went straight into the tomb… Finally the other disciple, who had reached the tomb first, also went inside…
John 21:20a, 21-22 NLT
Peter turned around and saw behind them the disciple Jesus loved… Peter asked Jesus, “What about him, Lord?” Jesus replied, “If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you? As for you, follow me.”
WHO OR WHAT IS GOING TO DEFINE MY WORTH?
Hebrews 12:1b-2a NIV
And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith.
1 Corinthians 9:24b-26a NLT
So run to win! All athletes are disciplined in their training. They do it to win a prize that will fade away, but we do it for an eternal prize. So I run with purpose in every step.
