A Weekend of Determination

A bull rider has to hold on to the bull rope for 8 seconds in order to receive points. He can't win if he doesn't determine to hold on for the entire ride.

Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway. 1 Corinthians 9:24-27

Make this a weekend of having a bull-rider mentality. Determine that you'll hold on for the full 8 seconds this weekend. It's easy to give up or make compromises in your Christian walk - it's difficult to persevere through all the trials. But Paul says through Christ we have the strength to run, obtain and succeed.
