When we get to the point where we are fed up with life. Fed up with dealing with fake people. Fed up with the politics of others. We have lost the focus on what really matters. As born-again believers we don’t have to report to man. In the end we report to the King of kings and Lord of lords! King Jesus is the one we are held accountable to. If we are fed up with life. We need to ask ourselves the question. Where am I at in my relationship with Christ? Is it still strong? Am I reading God’s Word? When was the last time I faithfully attending worship service? What is it that I think of the most in a day?
All of these questions are good to ask ourselves. To keep us in check. To let us know if we are back sliding. What do we need to do to get back on track? Do we need to repent of the path we are going down and switch directions? Do we need to forgive someone or ask for forgiveness? Maybe we need to forgive ourselves? Maybe we need to ask the question, are we really truly saved and are born-again?
Frustrations, disappointments, and conflicts come and go! It is a part of life. If you don’t have any of these, I really want to talk to you to see how you do it. The key thing is don’t lose site of the goal! The Goal as a born-again, blood bought believer of the Lord Jesus Christ is to WIN! Win the RACE!
1 Corinthians 9:24-25 24Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. 25And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.
WIN THE RACE Christian! We need to run like we never ran before! Get in that Book! Read that Book! Study that Book! Love that Book! Apply that Book!
