1 Corinthians 9:24-25 (KJV) Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.
Because Temitayo wanted to win the trophy, she was willing to do whatever it took. It became impossible for her to hide this from the people around her. Everyone now knew she was an athlete because she always did something that showed she was preparing for the championship.
It doesn’t take time for people who have to deal with really serious athletes to know that they are athletes. It is very difficult for them to hide this fact about themselves. It shows.
In the same way, when a believer is really serious about his kingdom assignment and winning his prize, he cannot hide his identity as a believer for long. Under normal circumstances, any believer who has successfully been able to hide his identity from his coworkers for several months may have been able to do so because he is not really striving for the prize of the mark of the high calling in God. Daniel worked in a godless environment, but it was impossible for him to hide who he really was. Moses couldn’t either.
When your kingdom assignment takes over you and becomes the most important thing in your life, you will find that you are a witness for Christ everywhere you go. The Holy Spirit would begin to give you insight into people’s lives just because He wants you to share the gospel with them.
Go into today remembering that you are first and foremost a witness for Christ in every place He has planted you. Ask the Lord to help you to this end. Ask for the wisdom to be a soul-winner.
