The Olympics are an incredible showing of athletic ability but more impressive to me is the level of determination and commitment required by each of the competitors to qualify. The Bible refers to our walk with Christ in terms of athletic competition. Whether you realize it or not we are in a race right now! Satan is doing all he can to cause you to quit, distract you from your course, and weigh you down so you won’t make it to the finish line. But today you need to know that the champion in you is alive and well. You can do all things through Christ who is giving you the strength you need to succeed. Not only can you make it but you are going to make it and finish your race full of joy.  God is calling us to do more than just finish, He is calling us to Go for the GOLD!
