Dedicate Yourself to the Long-Distance Race

The Christian life and spiritual growth are not sprints. They are long-distance races that require lifelong perseverance. You grow in spiritual maturity as you run the race moment by moment, day after day, and year after year.

In many ways, running the spiritual race is a lot like physical running. If you stop exercising physically, your body may not show the results of inactivity for a while. But in time you will wake up and find that you can’t run to the end of the block, and it’s a short one at that!

In the same way, you may think you can get by without exercising spiritually, by not reading your Bible, or praying, or going to church. One day, however, you will wake up and find yourself spiritually flabby, out of shape, and wide open to sin…all because you didn’t make a focused effort to keep growing day by day.

Remember, you cannot rest on yesterday’s growth. You must be dedicated to growing today… and every day!
