What’s the state of your race of faith? How much effort are you putting into running spiritually? Are you running to win, or are you just hanging out on the track? Your race is not a walk in the park, so you must plan and prepare if you are going to finish well. First Corinthians 9:24 says, “Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it.”
In this book, Rick Rhodes defines what it takes to run and win your race of faith. You’ll read stories of Olympic athletes, Biblical characters, and illustrations from Rick’s life that will bring laughter and conviction as you reflect on your own race for your Lord Jesus Christ. You’ll be challenged to check your effort, throw off your weights, and run with integrity so you are not disqualified.
“Run To Win” will help you determine personal weights, define your finish line, and understand what it takes to go the distance. You’ll also learn how to get back up and continue running after you have fallen. Even though you must run your own race, you will learn of the necessity and impact of identifying your team members and staying closely connected to them.
Rick explores potential pitfalls of the Christian race and shows how to overcome them, all the while earnestly pursuing his goal of motivating readers to run to win.
