Guidelines for a Successful Life Race

From Pastor Chuck Swindoll's Sermon, "Looking Ahead, Let’s Prepare for the Race"

In his sermon on Sunday, Pastor Chuck Swindoll shared five guidelines for a successful life race, based on Hebrews 12. Remember these guidelines as you run the race God has marked out for you, and always fix your eyes on Jesus.

Remember that God has pre-arranged the course you are to take.

Preparing for your race is your responsibility.

Stay focused on Jesus throughout the race.

When discouraged, think of all Christ endured in His life.

No matter how difficult life may become, don’t ever give up.
