The Secret of Running the Spiritual Race

September 29th, 2008

Nobody likes to be the one trailing the others home in a race. However, there are many who continue to stay behind in the most important race of all- the Spiritual race.

When your life is all uphill and it’s a fight just to keep going, either your flesh or your Spirit will prevail. You ultimately determine the winner.

Spiritual growth is essential if you are to win the race against your three arch enemies – your flesh, the world, and the devil.

The Bible teaches that the Holy Spirit seals our salvation. His presence within us shows us we are sealed with Christ. We have eternal hope and security in Heaven because the Holy Spirit placed us into the family of God when we accepted Christ as our Saviour.

So, it’s no secret really. If you want to win the Spiritual race then you need to revive the Spiritual power within you.

At Metropolitan Baptist Church during October that is our goal. You can revive your Spirit by choosing to be involved in many of the activities at church this month.

Why not join a Life Stages all-age Sunday school class on Sunday morning, or come along to midweek prayer each Wednesday or share your faith during soul-winning each Saturday morning.

It will do your Spirit the world of good!

As Pastor of Metropolitan Baptist Church I invite you to join us this month as we seek to revive our Spiritual power.
