VIII. MAIN BODY:

A. Consider life worth nothing on earth

"But my life is worth nothing to me"

Life is death for us here on earth and we are alive in CHRIST.

Philippians 1:21 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

For to me, living means living for Christ, and dying is even better.

Romans 14:8 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

If we live, it’s to honor the Lord. And if we die, it’s to honor the Lord. So whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord.

Galatians 2:20 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

B. Finish the race and complete the task, LORD JESUS has given

"unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus"

We are in a race.

Hebrews 12:1 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us.

2 Timothy 4:7 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, and I have remained faithful.

1 Corinthians 9:24-26 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

Don’t you realize that in a race everyone runs, but only one person gets the prize? So run to win!

All athletes are disciplined in their training. They do it to win a prize that will fade away, but we do it for an eternal prize.

So I run with purpose in every step. I am not just shadowboxing.

C. Task: Testify to the Gospel of GOD's Grace

"the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God"

Testify.

Acts 4:33 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

The apostles testified powerfully to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and God’s great blessing was upon them all.

2 Timothy 1:8 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)
