1 Corinthians 9:24-25 – Let the Rio Olympics Begin!

The Rio Olympics have officially begun! Let’s talk about how the Bible and the Olympics are connected.

Check out this awesome video that I found:

Just as Paul found a connection between sports training and what God wants for us, I too love finding those connections! That’s where 1 Corinthians 9:24-25 comes in. Running a race to win the prize is just like running the Christian race to win eternal life. Just as we train hard to be good at sports, we should train just as hard to be more like God.

If you enjoy reading about the parallels between sports and Christianity, let me know in the comment box below. Until then, enjoy watching the Rio Olympics and finding the lessons that athletes are learning at the games.
