If also a man contend in the games, he is not crowned, except he have contended lawfully. 2 Timothy 2.5.

Who in an athletic game would dare to step out of the line drawn in such a race? All must run within the assigned lines. And such is the meaning of 2 Timothy 2 which states that "if . . . a man contend in the games, he is not crowned, except he have contended lawfully"—that is to say, according to the rules. How very pitiful that many Christians run zealously, yet they do not run according to the course God has set. Our own zeal, labor and activity cannot substitute for God's rule and will. Running outside the will of God leads to loss. Since the Lord has set the course before us, we must run in it before we may expect to win the reward.
