Winning the Race
How do we win the race of life?
What’s the normal world view?
Having the nicest yard? The most modern kitchen? Owning your own jet? Owning the most toys? Being a really “good” person? Having a loving family and a white picket fence? $1 Million or $100 Million?
You just can’t win with the world’s standards.
It’s impossible because there’s no way to nail it down and it’s never enough.
It’s also constantly changing, depending on the person you talk to, or the latest fad.
Christ came to earth to let us win the race of life (John 3:16).
He has provided the way for true success in this life, and the life beyond (Romans 6:23).
His truth is timeless and never changes. His love for us is incredible and was shown as he died for us on the cross to bridge the gap between our naturally sinful selves and our holy God (John 14:6).
Our part is to accept Christ’s gift of forgiveness and turn our hearts toward him (Ephesians 2:8).
Then we have won. It’s done.
We have won the race and everything else pales in comparison!
But then what? What do we do now?
Even though we’ve already won the race, we keep racing like we are going after first place (1 Corinthians 9:24; Acts 20:24).
How do we do that?
Welcome to the purpose of, “Get a Grip and Sail Your Ship!”
Rather than drifting wherever the wind and the waves of sinful and selfish desires take us, we want to intentionally navigate and set our sails for God’s way in each area of our lives (Romans 8:5-6).
That’s an incredible challenge, but we recognize that with Christ, anything is possible (Philippians 4:13).
God wants us to be fulfilled and complete the mission that fits us perfectly.
He gives us the power and freedom to make choices and use our talents, skills and interests for his glory (Matthew 25:14-30).
Talk about potential! Talk about power! Let’s tap in and go for it!
“Get a Grip and Sail Your Ship,” is simply another way of saying, “Put Christ First and Live a Full and Amazing Life.”
My prayer is that you will have a truly amazing and purposeful life filled with God’s love and grace as you “sail” with him (John 10:10).
