Gold Or Bust
Main Scripture: 1st Corinthians 9:24
Lately I have been pondering the life of the greats while being so caught up in the Micheal Jordan documentary on ESPN. I have always been a fan of the hard work that the man put in to become great at the things he saw as valuable in his life. But what are we doing for the MOST valuable thing in life?
I heard a quote from Micheal Jordan one day that stuck with me, “Winning isn’t always championships.” Ya know, the more I look at it, the more ways this applies to everything we do. 1 Corinthians 9:24 says “ Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it.” While most of us do not run in a race or play in the NBA Finals everyday, we do compete to win over hearts for the glory of God.
Look back at your past week, month, year! What have you done for Him? Have you told anyone? Have you volunteered for His glory and not your own? Have you spoken with sincere love to those who may not know His love? Look, I’m just as guilty as every other person reading this of getting caught up and putting my needs first. But we were created for our needs, we were created for our needs, but to fulfill His!
So take some time, sit back and bask in His glory, then go run His race. Not for a day, or a week. Wake up everyday asking God, What can I do for you? Where can I go for you? Don’t run to run. Don’t run to maybe finish on the leaderboard. Run to win! As for me, it’s gold or bust!
