Don't you realize that in a race everyone runs, but only one person gets the prize? So be all in, know which way to go and run to win!

The difference between running your race to win verses just running to run (hah!.. strike a pose), the dif between playing to win and playing not to lose... is the difference between real success and "ho hum" mediocrity. 

Why just exist? Why be "in" to be lukewarm, or just to merely make it through? 

Authentic, bona-fide winners are in the race..ALL IN knowing the Way, the good direction.. and they run to win. They do what is right and then they feel real good. Whiners ain't really runnin' their race to win -- they want to feel good before they do what is right. In the race or out.. we each must choose.. winning or whining? Overcoming or merely existing.

Lost religious leaders and people merely run to run. They desire to look like they know the way and appear like they are running to win. Why waste time, why be like them? Jesus Christ ran His race and overcame. He loves you, has the runner's plan and wants you all in. Come to Him now. (Good Idea: Take the time when you can to read or hear these verses in their context)  
Run in such a way that you may win. 1 Corinthians 9:24
It was because of a revelation that I went up; and I submitted to them the gospel which I preach among the Gentiles, but I did so in private to those who were of reputation, for fear that I might be running, or had run, in vain. Galatians 2:2
You were running well; who hindered you from obeying the truth? Galatians 5:7
..holding fast the word of life, so that in the day of Christ I will have reason to glory because I did not run in vain nor toil in vain. Philippians 2:16
I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:14
Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, Hebrews 12:1
I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith; 2 Timothy 4:7
...in the future there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day; and not only to me, but also to all who have loved His appearing. 2 Timothy 4:8
Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may win. Everyone who competes in the games exercises self-control in all things They then do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. Therefore I run in such a way, as not without aim; I box in such a way, as not beating the air; 1 Corinthians 9:24-27
...fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:2
