The Christian Life Is Like An Athletic Program

“Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us” (Heb. 12:1).

In this race of life we have encouragers. Being in the race set for us, is fulfilling the purpose for which God created us. The Bible is saying, in this race there are encouragers, some pioneers have come and their good works follow them. There is a purpose for which God created every one of us and until a person accomplishes that purpose or is in the process of doing so, he or she will never be living an abundant life. That person will never be living a life worth living. He or she will never be living a fulfilled life.

You may have all the money you want, or all the relationships you want, but you won’t be living the purposeful life that God gave you as a believer if you are not in the race of life set before you. That is, if you are not living in the will of God, seeking to obey Him, you will never find fulfilment. If you don’t walk in the good works that God prepared before the foundation of this earth, you will never be satisfied in life. You will never be able to fill that void with anything in life than walking in the will of God. We need to walk in the good works that God prepared for us and not to walk away from them.For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them” (Eph. 2:10).
