In this C. H. E. Sadaphal sermon, learn how to run a good race. In our Christian walk, we all run a “race” and expect to meet our Lord and Savior, Jesus, at the finish line. Running a good race means our expectations will be met. Running a bad race means our fate may fall short of our present desire.
The theme for this message comes from Philippians 3:12-14.
First, running a good race means running for Jesus. This must be said because every believer is capable of running a great race for something other than God—wealth, recognition and power are just a few examples. Jesus is our race sponsor which means how we run changes, what our goals are changes, and how with interact with other runners also changes. Learn what charismatic Jamaicans and non-famous Samoans have to to with keeping a good stride.
Second, running a good race means running light. If we glorify something other than Christ, it becomes hard to pursue Him when other weights slow us down. Find out what married couples do in their free time has to with the conquest of ancient monuments.
Third, unlock the secret to making forward progress: 1 + 1 = 1. The past should push us ahead and the future should pull us forward. Keeping a focus on the past is like running on a treadmill: your legs may churn at top speed but in reality you’re going nowhere.
