Therefore I run in such a way, as not without aim; I box in such a way, as not beating the air (I Corinthians 9:26 NIV).
There are many Christians who are excited about being Christians, but they don’t really go on to accomplish much for Christ. They have a lot of energy, but they don’t use it to do anything of significance to help others or to assist in the spread of the gospel. These people are running the Christian race in an undisciplined manner. It would be better for them to prayerful seek God’s guidance for focusing their energy on something important rather than to live in a constant state of excitement while never accomplishing anything.
