May 27 – 10am Sunday – “Finish Your Race” – – 1 Corinthians 9
The Apostle Paul was well acquainted with sports, although he was raised as an Orthodox Jew, he was also born a Roman citizen living in Tarsus, and influenced by Greek culture, and the Olympic games (1 Cor.9). He saw the Christian life as a race for an eternal crown. He compared the Christian to an athlete who wanted to finish what he started, and to finish strong. As Christians, we all have our own race to run, and God has given to each of us certain gifts & callings. Hebrews 12 tells us to “run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus for inspiration”. When we do, there will be a crown of righteousness waiting for us in heaven.
