Olympic Greatness-Friday Freedom

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. Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. So I do not run aimlessly; I do not box as one beating the air. But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified. - 1 Corinthians 9:24-27

Lord Jesus give me a greater passion for You! Help me to strive for godliness like Usain Bolt trains to run or like Michael Phelps trains to swim. Increase my zeal for You. Holy Spirit help me display greater discipline in my prayer life and in making time to meditate on The Bible. Athletes train for rewards that will perish one day, but You have rewards for Christians that will last forever! Thank you Jesus! AMEN
