Hebrews 12:1; 1 Corinthians 9:24; 2 Chronicles 20:15-17; 2 Timothy 4:6-7
– We must go all out and leave everything on the field.
– We cannot run different races the same way.
– Whether we are running a marathon or a sprint, we yet need patience.
– Even in activities that are at a fast pace, we still have to be patient.
– There is a skill to running a race.
– On your mark. Get set. Go.  We have to be on our mark and not worry about anyone else’s. 
– Forget about staying in your lane, stay on your mark.
– Our mark may not always stay the same.
– Get set.  Get ready.  We need to be more ready for the things of God than the the things of the world.
– Go.  We can’t stay where we are.
– What keeps us from moving is the comfort of the familiar.
– The only running we can do and not move is running in place.
– Wherever God is taking us is always a better place than where we are.
– We are running the race to finish it and we are running to win.
