“Go for the Gold” Scripture (1 Corinthians 9:24-27) Sunday Feb. 4, 2018

Call to Worship   

 

L:         The prize of the heavenly call beckons us onward.

 

P:         Therefore we do not lose hope in this race before us.

 

L:         Let us look to Jesus who blazed a trail before us, following in his wake.

 

P:         He fought the good fight, kept the faith, and finished the race.

 

U:        Let us run and not grow weary for a crown of glory awaits us!

 

Scripture (1 Corinthians 9:24-27)

Our reading comes from the first letter to the Corinthians.

24Do you not know that in a race the runners all compete, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may win it.
25Athletes exercise self-control in all things; they do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable one.
 26So I do not run aimlessly, nor do I box as though beating the air;
27but I punish my body and enslave it, so that after proclaiming to others I myself should not be disqualified.

Here ends our reading. May God bless our understanding.

I run for my Maker

Each race I begin.

I run for my Maker ~

I run with the wind.

To run for my Maker

My burning desire.

To be for my Maker

A chariot of fire!

And all of my days

I’ll sing Your praise

In all that I do

And every step

along

the way

I run it for You.

I run for my Maker

Each race I begin.

I run for my Maker ~

I run with the wind.

To run for my Maker

My burning desire.

To be for my Maker

A chariot of fire!

And all of my days

I’ll sing Your praise

In all that I do

And every step

along

the way

I run it for You.

I run it for You.
