Catch Up and Plan is a summary of the main three parts to this section on Getting Ready for the race to overcome sexual sins and impurity and obtain pure lives before the Lord.
We have already discussed:
1) Confession leads to commitment. We have joined the race because we we don't want to remain where we are. We are motivated to become wholesome and loving people centered around purity.
2) Listening to our trainers. We can stay on course, motivated and protected, if we follow our trainers' advice. Faith, Hope and Love all have their special instructions from God to keep us running right to the end.
3) Necessity for heart change. Down deep we have decided to follow this course no matter what it costs. We have no other course to run than the course of purity which pleases God and through which we can love those around us.
Don't forget to keep adding onto your list of confessions as necessary. We will still come back to that and deal with them once for all.
Ahead are ... Burying the past
(silencing the past through confession) Golden Keys (Utilizing God's Word) Increasing our speed (Overcoming temptation) Jumping hurdles (Fighting with death)
But before ... But before we get into these more practical matters, our trainers will teach us to dream about victory. We will share how we were made to win and what happens when we are on the winning side. God has designed us to win.
