Pastor Steve DeWitt teaches from 1 Corinthians 9:24-27 on running the spiritual race with determination, single-mindedness and discipline. He asks the question, "Are you sweating for Jesus Christ?" and challenges all of us to run the race so that we can win the prize.
24 Do you not know that in a race all the runners compete, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it. 25 Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. 26 So I do not run aimlessly; I do not box as one beating the air. 27 But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified. 1 Corinthians 9:24 — 1 Corinthians 9:27 ESV
