Acts 20:24 Ė Are You Running Your Race

V24 - But I do not consider my life of any account as dear to myself, in order that I may finish the course, and the ministry, which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify solemnly of the gospel of the grace of God.

What is your calling in life? What is the course that youíre trying to run? Is it running your own race or the course set by our Lord God Almighty? Many of us have our own agenda, and we seem to be running aimlessly trying to accomplish something. However, we see here the Apostle Paul saying that he was trying to veer the course of sharing the gospel, which he received his ministry from the Lord.

Paulís goal and aim was to finish the course that God had set for him and he doggedly did that as he preached the gospel to almost the whole continent in Asia Minor. Rm 15:19. He was dead set in knowing what he wanted to do and his aim was to complete the race that Christ had set for him.

Are you too running your own race? Do you, like Paul, is able to say at the end of your journey that you have fought the good fight and you have kept the faith. Are you able to testify to the Lord Jesus that your aim is to solemnly finish the race that God has set for you to run? What is your aspiration in running your race? Are you motivated by the crown that youíll receive while you finish the course in this life? Do you consider your life as dear to yourself?

What is the yardstick for you to measure your success? Is it accomplishing all that youíve set for yourself to do, or are you finishing the race that Christ has set for you? If we stay sensitive to the Lord, we will know what He is saying to us and we would know His plan for ourselves. Are you receiving your plans from the master?

Can you say at the end of your life that you have fought the good fight and you have finished the race? 2 Tim 4:7. You can only answer this question if you know the race that you are running now is from the Lord.

Run to win the crown that is yours, if you were to consider Godís plan for you as His.
