The Pace of the Race

1 Timothy 4

The Tortoise and the Hare

1. Sitting – Distracted and detoured from off the course
• Listening to seducing spirits – back sliding – misquoting – deny (justify) Jeremiah 8:5
• Doctrines of the devil – false teaching Galatians 5:7
• V5 – combat with word and prayer
• V3 – affecting others with lies, deceit , and hypocrisy
a. Outward effects

2. Walking
– Saved at church – spiritually out – of – shape – need exercise
• Need to be reminded, taught, commanded (Titus 3:5)
a. Its not a race – it’s a “charity event” – donate, t-shirts

• Godliness – daily routine of spiritual exercises
• Jude 20:21 – Weight training – building faith
• No pain, no gain
• Cardiovascular – increasing Love (heart)

3. Running – (affects others – v16 outward) Committed and progressive – getting better – Hebrews 12:1
• Romans 10:17 – v13 – In the word – read, comfort, teach – SS/Wed. – make us do what we should do.
• I Corinthians 12:11 – v14 – Spiritual Gifts – finding, understanding, using it
• II Corinthians 9:24 – v6 – Examination – give head to self – not others
Why we practice the Lord’s supper
