This is a screenshot of an email I received from Back to the Bible; it shows the true meaning of what the Apostle Paul was speaking about in “running the good race” for Christ. It is pure and simple, it reminds us that life is a challenge, and if we do not want to be disqualified, we will push forward in our faith to obtain the victory in every matter we might encounter!
Paul wrote this as an encouragement to the early church, it was not a threat based in fear of losing one’s Salvation. As this was written in love, in showing the great power available to all believers who will put their trust in Christ alone throughout their lives in faith. It was never intended to be used for a worrisome foreboding, in using guilt and fear, (which this text it is oftentimes manipulated the mean) – yet it does not!
