Running to Win

This coming Friday, the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympics will take place in London and I’m sure it’s going to be an amazing spectacle. Therefore, whether you are interested in sport or not, it is very likely that you will feel part in this great global event. For centuries sport has made a significant contribution to our society. Sport has been able to express the fundamental human desire to win. In the passage we’ve just read, the apostle Paul calls on this basic human “desire’” and directs it toward obtaining an eternal prize from God. He compares the Christian life to a competitive race, and says that we should run to win. But what was the argument Paul is putting forward? And what issues was he addressing in the church at Corinth? To understand this metaphor, and its imagery, we must first understand the sports culture of that era and the high profile is was given in that society.
