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. 25 Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. 26 Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like a boxer beating the air. 27 No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize. – 1 Corinthians 9:24-27
How would you stay in the race?
My leader once told me that Discipleship will make me stay on the track.
And I have to agree about it.
Last Sunday, it was a different experience of fetching your invites particularly knowing the fact that I will guide these young people with their journey to Christ.
The funny thing is that after fetching my two invites at the train station, I have to go back again on that station to fetch my other invites. It was pretty taxing but I turned away what my body demands.
Even I waited for half an hour and I was becoming so klutzy, at the end of the day, I am fulfilled.
I’m excited to really unleash the potentials of these people, of transforming their lives, and bringing out their leadership skill.
Some may not understand what I am doing, some may say this is insane, but I would still do this for Him. I know my reward for this is something that will not last.
I’m not just inviting for the sake of inviting people but I’m doing this because I want them to connect to Christ. If they experience the things that I have experienced after accepting Him, then I believe their lives will never be the same again. I want to become an agent of change because one day I know, this nation will be changed.
Our journey as a follower of Christ is not about knowing Him every single day, but it’s about making Him known. It’s all about sharing His words and transforming one person at a time.
I can’t say that I love Christ if I’m not making Him known. It’s not just about loving Him, but it’s about of sharing His love to everyone.
Of course, our life as a believer is not really smooth sailing, but we just have to journey with it.
I believe this is just another beginning of my journey to Christ and the best is really yet to come.
God bless everyone!
