Overcoming Distractions to Win the Prize

Overcoming DistractionsBible:
1 Corinthians 9:24-28

Discussion Starter:
Challenge accepted! With 70 seconds on the clock you have to get from Point A to Point B for a fun prize. If you think about it nearly every day you face a similar test. A life with Jesus is full of obstacles, distractions, and unexpected adventures. As we saw in the video, if the prize is worth it nothing seems can get in your way.

But how do we do that day in and day out? In 1 Corinthians 9 Paul gives us the strategy for overcoming distractions in our walk with Christ. “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.” In other words, the best way to overcome stuff that keeps us from getting our prize is self-discipline. To win the prize you can’t waste your time focusing on the obstacles, you have to focus on winning the prize.

3 Questions:

  1. Would you rather win a prize like in the video or win money?
  2. Have you ever accepted a crazy challenge?
  3. What are the obstacles in your life which distract your walk with Jesus?

Chew on this:
If walking with Jesus is really an adventure how come it isn’t always fun?
