The Christian Olympics: Going for the Gold Crowns, unveils the Bible’s comparison of the Christian life to the Olympic Games. And just as the participants in the Olympics are competing to come in first place, Gregg encourages believers to strive to win the gold prize in the Christian race.
Sad to say, however, many Christians are falling by the wayside. Many have lost all hope of ever living a victorious life in Christ. Many Christians don’t feel that living holy lives matters anymore and many have become discouraged in their daily walk with the Lord, because they are bombarded on every side by personal problems, suffering, and worldly events.
S.E. Gregg recognized this loss of spiritual fervor in the hearts of many Christians and was inspired by God to help ignite the spiritual flames once again, and to help get believers back into the Christian race. Taking to heart the Words in Hebrews 12:1: “…let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us”, Gregg encourages believers to look forward and to press forward to the blessings that lay ahead as a reward for finishing the race.
