The scripture for today, September 25, is 1st Corinthians 9:25f as found in the New Testament of the Bible:
Every few years there are world-wide Olympic Games with many races. The racers must eat properly, rest sufficiently, and exercise daily.
The Bible has been called the Bread of Life. As Christians we need to eat our spiritual meal every day to stay fit. We cannot keep up our strength without it. Our time of rest is prayer. We enter a room alone and talk to God every day. We need our rest. We cannot keep up our strength without it.
I Timothy 4:8 says, “For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.” We exercise our godliness by being out in the world and being a good example in the face of temptation. We exercise our spiritual muscles daily.
The race is our Christian life. We run every day. How is your race going?
