*When you work hard to show results, it will create a greater thirst for God’s presence.

*Never throw in the towel.  Only use it to wipe off sweat and continue on the journey to maturity.

*Completing the goal of conforming to His image requires repeated acts of spiritual disciplines: repeated acts of worship, reading the word, praying, fasting and fellowship.

*To be used by God, I must be FIT. 

*The baton of God’s activity in my life must be passed on to others who are waiting for me to run this race.
