Now every athlete in training submits himself to strict discipline, and he does it just to win a laurel wreath that will soon wither away. But we do it to win a crown that will last forever.
As believers, we are taking place in the greatest struggle of all time. We are to spread light to ward away the darkness. We are warriors and beacons of light. We should push ourselves ever closer to our Heavenly Father that we should have even more light to shine, to spread, to pierce the darkness. Living a godly life is the point of life and as such it should be our top priority. You will grow and develop in your walk. Keep at it and keep finding new ways to infuse godliness into your life, there is always more we can do. Don’t give up, be Holy, he set apart for Heaven’s sake until your dying breath!
