1 Corinthians 9:24-27 English Standard Version (ESV)
24 Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it. 25 Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. 26 So I do not run aimlessly; I do not box as one beating the air. 27 But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified.

24-25 You’ve all been to the stadium and seen the athletes race. Everyone runs; one wins. Run to win. All good athletes train hard. They do it for a gold medal that tarnishes and fades. You’re after one that’s gold eternally.26-27 I don’t know about you, but I’m running hard for the finish line. I’m giving it everything I’ve got. No sloppy living for me! I’m staying alert and in top condition. I’m not going to get caught napping, telling everyone else all about it and then missing out myself.
WE HAVE IT!! “for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.”
2 Timothy 1:7
If you have blown it and lacked self-control God’s grace and mercy is sufficient.
He will get you back on track.
Lord, your discipline is good, for it leads to life and health. You restore my health and allow me to live! Isaiah 38:16
