how I treat my friends, my family, my co-workers and my wife--
all reflects on how I act as a Christian in every sitation:
every decision weighs on how I work out my own salvation.
When I am with those who are weak, I share in their weakness,
for I want to bring the weak to Christ to be saved and blessed!
Yes, I try to find common ground with everyone I befriend,
doing everything I can to spread the Good News to save some!
I realize that when there is a footrace everyone runs to win!
but at the finish line the prize is only given to one!
Athletes run and run to win a prize that will fade away,
but we run for the eternal prize to be with Jesus, finally safe!
So I run with confidence and purpose in every step knowing the end:
I am not just shadowboxing, because in the end I will win, with Him!
reference: 1 Corinthians 9:22-27 (NLT)
