World Missions Race: 11 Countries in 11 Months
LISTEN NOW! Greg, John, and Pat discuss the world race mission’s trip 11 countries in 11 months. They continue to discuss this amazing opportunity people have been given to visit 11 countries in 11 months, living with the bare minimum to preach the gospel around the world. This is a commitment that will at times result in them not being able to bathe for a week and at other times live in tents. What matters to these individuals that enter the world mission race is that Jesus is shared with those they encounter. They go on Luke 10 walks, pray for those in need and watch God respond in power.
Running For the Prize
Greg, John, and Pat discuss how we need to run the race to win the prize.
The Bible tells us in 1 Corinthians 9:24 “Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.” They continue to discuss how when athletes compete for their athletic teams they go under strict training to perform at their best. They just don’t go out on the field and play that’s what fans do. Athletes spend long hours and many weeks preparing, training, learning, and practicing before they actually take the field for a brief moment. All this preparation is to win the prize. They encourage us to live our lives before the Lord the same way. Run in such a way to win the prize. Paul said that he beats his body as to now disqualify himself from the prize. They further discuss the importance of running and playing in such a way that we receive a crown. They challenge us not to live for this life but to live for the one to come and to have a crown that we would want to lay at Jesus’ feet.
Revelation 4:10-11 “The twenty-four elders fall down before him who sits on the throne and worship him who lives for ever and ever. They lay their crowns before the throne and say: “You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things and by your will they were created and have their being.”
