These wonderful words of encouragement are part of today’s Daily Reading from Presbyterian U.S.A. All of today’s Readings can be found at https://www.presbyterianmission.org/devotion/daily/.
The entire paragraph that starts with this verse is so encouraging:
1 Corinthians 9:24-27 (NRSV):
“Do you not know that in a race the runners all compete, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may win it. Athletes exercise self-control in all things; they do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable one. So I do not run aimlessly, nor do I box as though beating the air; but I punish my body and enslave it, so that after proclaiming to others I myself should not be disqualified.”
May we all run our Christian race this day with aim, purpose, and to win!
