In it for the Long Haul
1 Corinthians 9:24-25
Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize?Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. (NIV)
Stand firm, and you will win life.
