The Apostle Paul wrote to the Corinthian the importance of self-discipline to assist in finishing the race. He compares the life of a believer to a runner in an athletic competition. A believer and an both have purpose. As believers, we are not in this life to randomly walk through it – we have purpose and destiny. To finish our race we must have self-control, self-government and intentional discipline. We must continue seeking God and be actively engaged in the Christian life.
