5 Stories From The Bible For Game Day
Here are 5 stories from the Bible for game day.
Running the Race
Track athletes sometimes use ankle weights. By running in them, they build muscles more quickly, but if you’re in a race, you’ve got to take them off. We cannot run the race in this life while being overloaded with the things of this world and living in unconfessed sin. We must “lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us” (Hebrews 12:1b), and keep our eyes on Jesus Who’s waiting for us at the finish line (Hebrews 12:2).
With All Your Might
I knew a man who scrubbed the bathroom floors of a large shop, and it was so dirty that he had to do it by hand with a scrub brush. For nearly seven years this man did the dirtiest kinds of work. Work no one else would do, but he did this while attending college in the evening, and his memory verse was, “Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might, for there is no work or thought or knowledge or wisdom in Sheol, to which you are going”(Ecclesiastes 9:1). Today, he has a master’s day, but still does it with all his might.
On Eagle’s Wings
Track runners usually say they get their second wind later in the race…and that’s what believer’s need when they encounter difficulties along the way, so remember that “they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint” (Isaiah 40:31).
By His Strength
We can do little in this life in our own strength, but the Apostle Paul said that “I can do all things through him who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13). Naturally, “all things” must be according to His will, but if we can do all things through Him, this also means we can do nothing without Him (John 15:5), and nothing is not a little something. That ought to keep us humble while still doing the best we can.
Finished the Race
I can only imagine what it will be like to cross the finish line…when the corruptible puts on the incorruptible. Then we can say as the Apostle Paul said: “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith” (2 Timothy 4:7). We might stumble in the race, but we’re sure to finish it (Romans 8:38-39; John 10:28-29).
I believe the Word of God can motivate us to do our very best for the Lord, win or lose, so if you enjoyed these 11 motivating Bible verse quotes for game day, please share them with a friend.
