This week features a lesson by Neal Pollard presented as the Wednesday night keynote in 2017. Neal examines 1 Corinthians 9:24-27 to draw out 4 easy-to-understand principles that we can use to maintain our focus. The Christian life is a long-distance marathon that is filled with distractions, and it is so easy to lose sight of the goal. Neal uses the text to highlight a plan provided by the Apostle Paul to help Christians keep their focus towards heaven.
Neal reminds us that
- You are in it to win it – 1 Corinthians 9:24
- We are not after an ordinary prize – 1 Corinthians 9:25
- You can lose focus – 1 Corinthians 9:26
- You can be disqualified – 1 Corinthians 9:27
