What's the Goal?

1 Peter 1:13
Therefore, prepare your minds for action; be self-controlled; set your hope fully on the grace to be given you when Jesus Christ is revealed.

When you run a race, it is easy to lose sight of the goal and get caught up in the moment. Life is the same way. Often we, as Christians, lose sight of the end result, which is eternity with Christ. It is easy to become bogged down, even with "good" things such as school and ministry, but neither of those can be the end result. Our focus, our goal, what motivates and keeps us going should be Jesus Christ. We should run in such a way as to win the prize (1 Corinthians 9:24), throwing off the sin that easily entangles and looking towards the Author and Perfecter of our faith (Hebrews 12:1-2).

Your sister in Christ,
