Christian Marathon

Christian life is like running a marathon. First a person must decide to run in the race.

The day we accept Jesus Christ as payment for our sin is the decision to begin the Christian race.

The marathon runner must train. Our training as a Christian begins by Bible reading, prayer, church, learning to witness and obeying God.

Proper food is very important to the marathon runner. The right amount of vitamins and carbs are important to be able to have strength to finish  the race. The Christian must have proper food also. We get our strength from the Word of God the Bible and direction from the Holy Spirit.

Running in a marathon is not easy, there are health risks involved but the runner gladly accepts the risks to finish the course. The  Christian race is not easy either but we must decide to finish our course.

How are you doing in your Christian race? The marathon runner does not give up or quit and as a Christian we must not quit serving the Lord no matter how long or hard life may become. Our prize is worth much more than the marathon winners. Our prize is our Savior telling us, Well done thy good and faithful servant. Matthew 22:21

Hebrews 12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
