Word of the Day:Train to win
A story is given of a young heavy weight fighter who held the world boxing title. His reign was short lived because he was quickly dethroned due to his lack of exercising self-discipline in his social life. He was a power hitter but had not learned how to avoid getting hit which made him an easy target against his opponents. As a result of all this, he lost his title.
We can see the same story in the spiritual arena where there are many talented Christians who start at a high pace in the Lord’s service but without an overall plan to conquer the enemy, they quickly lose their momentum and zeal for the Lord.
In the book of 2nd Corinthians 6, Paul explains the strategy that is needed to endure spiritual battles and to have a life-time of effective service for the Lord. We need to always remember that the Christian life takes commitment, knowledge, stamina and love which are gained through the power of the Holy Spirit. Life is a series of battles against sin, are you training to win?
“Therefore I do not run like a man running aimlessly; I do not fight lie a man beating the air. No, I beat my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.”
1st Corinthians 26-27
