Scriptures: Hebrews 12:1-3, 1 Corinthians 9:24, Philippians 1:6

You are in a race. You entered that race the moment you surrendered your life to Christ. It is a personal race--we each live our lives for Christ as God instructs, gifts and guides us individually. it is also a permanent race. Once you get onto this track you’re in it for life. Every Christian will finish his race, that is make it safely to Heaven, but not every Christian will win his race. Now the Lord is not just looking for runners in this race, He is looking for winners. Everyday He wants you to strap on your running shoes; put on your running clothes; toe the mark and run your race to win. As Dr. Merritt teaches through these passage of Scripture we will learn exactly how to do it.

"Our problem is not generally choosing between good and bad; we all know how to do that. Our problem is choosing between what is good and what is best. You see, there are many things that are good things, but they are not necessarily the best things, and good things become bad things when they keep you from the best things." --Dr. Merritt
