Running the Race

This message series focuses on Saint Paul’s image of the Christian as an athlete who needs to prepare to run. The 4 P's (Prayer, Presence, Patience, Perseverance) will enable us to win the race. This race that Saint Paul speaks of is the “antidote” to the rat race that sees life only as a series of fleeting and too short moments to get more. It doesn’t make the race easy but it makes the ultimate victory possible and brings God close to us as our coach and guide.
