Are you running the race? Runners train to build up their endurance so they can complete the race. The proof of their training is evident in how they complete the race. They avoid anything that might slow them down: junk food, bad sleeping habits, etc. We also must train and cast off burdens that inhibit us in our race with Christ.
1. What things get in your way and keep you from experiencing the holiness of Christ?
2. Are you being a witness of the new life you received in Christ?
Challenge: Make a list of the things that get between you and showing others how you run the race differently. Take action to remove these things from your life.
