Sermon Notes

The Bible tells us time and time again that we are not running for the things of this world. Rather, we are running for a future kingdom, and all of our energy must be directed towards that purpose. 1 John 2:17 says that this world is passing away, but whoever lives for God lives forever. Matthew 6:19-20 reminds us that we aren’t running for prizes of an earthly nature that are temporary, rather we run for a heavenly prize that can never be taken away. And even in our passage today, in Philippians 3:20 we see that our citizenship is not on earth, but in heaven and we live our lives here on earth eagerly awaiting the day when we receive our prize of going home. There is a race worth running and a prize worth running for, so run after the prize. In A World Full Of Worthless Trophies There Is One That Is Worth Pursuing
