OBTAINING THE PRIZE - BOOK OF 1 CORINTHIANS LESSon #13
Date of Sermon: May 12, 2013
Main Idea: Obtaining Christ's praise requires focus and discipline
Key Verse: "but only one receives the prize. So run that you may obtain it." 1 Corinthians 9:24
Bible Reading: 24 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. 25 Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. 26 So I do not run aimlessly; I do not box as one beating the air. 27 But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified.
