My sister is a runner and has competed in many races. While we were in DC, she decided to take in all the sites on foot and ran for ten miles seeing every monument that we had seen the previous night plus took in a few we hadn't seen yet. Who does that for fun? However, she didn't just wake up one morning and say, "I'm going to run 10 miles today"! It has taken her time and lots of training to get to where a ten mile run was easy. The same goes for believers, you don't just wake up one morning knowing everything you need to know about God, He's more complicated than that! Much training is needed just to begin to understand the depth of who He is. This is why it is vitally important that you start your training now; it takes time to begin building upon your layers of knowledge. It's worth it for what is waiting for us at the finish line! GET ON YOUR MARK! GET SET! GO! Finish the race!
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. Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. 1 Corinthians 9:24-25
