1 Corinthians 9:24 says, “Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.”
Paul summarizes this passage in verses 24–27 by emphasizing the importance of discipline in the Christian life (discipline which includes sacrificing personal rights and comforts for the sake of others).
