Are You an Olympian?

And 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. I Corinthians 9:25

Think about an Olympian… they are striving to attain the highest goal. A GOLD medal! 
Because they are determined and focused on winning they exercise self control or temperance. They eat only certain foods, they exercise and practice, they make sure they get plenty of rest. 

They DO what is BEST to achieve the goal. 

Sometimes this means that they don’t get to do “what they want to do.”  They don’t get Pizza and Mt. Dew or they don’t get to stay out all night, but to them it is OK because they are focused on the prize. 

We run our race IN CHRIST in the same way. 

There are things that we DO NOT DO because they are not what is BEST to achieve the goal. The goal is completing the purpose God has designed YOU for! 

Exercise Self Control not as a punishment but as a reward knowing that as you obey the instruction of God’s Word it is Winning Your Race in this lifetime. 

Don’t be distracted, Stay focused on the Kingdom Purpose you are created for!
