Story behind the song
I Cor 9:24 Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may win. They do it to receive a perishable wreath (crown) but we an imperishable. It's in the news everyday – the world is gearing up for the 2012 Olympics. The apostle Paul often used the analogy of the Olympic Games in his explanation of spiritual principles. In doing so he makes it clear that receiving the crown is the result of a concerted effort on the part of the dedicated Believer. Too many times we hear the proposal, whether expressed or implied, that all we have to do is come to Jesus and all of our problems will be solved. It sounds so exciting to the distressed soul that has been beaten and trodden by the circumstances of living in an imperfect world, but any mature Christian knows that such a proposal is not based on reality. Jesus told His disciples that in this world you will have tribulation. And by the time Peter had a few years of experience to his credit he could truthfully write to the early church – beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal among you which comes upon you for your testing, as though some strange thing were happening to you, but … keep on rejoicing.
Did you really think that living this life would garner approval for you And maybe they told you that all was accomplished – there was nothing that you had to do But when you experience disappointments and troubles you didn't foresee Rejoice in the Hope that is set before you – a home for eternity Crowns don't come easy and you won't win the victory without any cost You'll be running this race 'til the line has been crossed And maybe you'll falter in the pace that's been set Keep your eyes on the prize and don't ever forget – crowns don't come easy You say you're discouraged and nothing seems right though you've done everything you've been told And it seems you've been destined for Silver or Bronze – every time you were striving for Gold Still something within you keeps driving you on - that last spark of hope just won't die In spite of the obstacles placed in your path you know that you still have to try It's all coming down to that one final sprint and the finish line comes into view The thunderous crowd's going wild with delight – you know that they're cheering for you The Master is smiling He's clearly impressed with all of your efforts to win In spite of the accolades of all the others you know that its all about Him
