John Lin - Run for the Prize - 081025

  1. 1. life together: run for the prize 1 corinthians 9:24-27
  2. 3. 1 Cor. 9:24-27 <ul><li>24 Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. </li></ul><ul><li>25 Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. </li></ul><ul><li>26 Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like a boxer beating the air. </li></ul><ul><li>27 No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize. </li></ul>
  3. 4. <ul><li>2 Tim. 4:7-8 </li></ul><ul><li>I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day-- and not only to me, but to all who have longed for his appearing. </li></ul>
  4. 5. <ul><li>Rev. 2:10 </li></ul><ul><li>“ Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you life as your victor’s crown.” </li></ul>
  5. 6. <ul><li>Phil. 2:12 </li></ul><ul><li>Continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, </li></ul><ul><li>for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose. </li></ul>
  6. 7. <ul><li>1 Cor. 15:10 </li></ul><ul><li>But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace to me was not without effect. </li></ul><ul><li>No, I worked harder than all of them-- yet not I, but the grace of God that was with me. </li></ul>
  7. 8. <ul><li>E v eryone must be active in the process of their </li></ul><ul><li>salvation and transformation to Christlikeness. </li></ul><ul><li>This is an unescapable fact. But the initiative in </li></ul><ul><li>the process is always God’s, and we would do </li></ul><ul><li>nothing without his initiative…The issue now </li></ul><ul><li>concerns what we will do. The idea that we can </li></ul><ul><li>do nothing is an unfortunate confusion, and those </li></ul><ul><li>who sponsor it never practice it, thank goodness. </li></ul><ul><li>Dallas Willard, Renovation of the Heart , p. 82. </li></ul>
