9:24 Know ye not that - In those famous games which are kept at the isthmus, near your city. They who run in the foot race all run, though but one receiveth the prize - How much greater encouragement have you to run; since ye may all receive the prize of your high calling!

 

People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 9:24

1Co 9:24 Know ye not that they who run in a race all run. He had spoken of self denial in order to secure gospel success. He now enforces the need of sparing no effort, self denial or exertion, to win the crown. The Corinthians were familiar with the races in the stadium. The Isthmian games, among the most famous of Greece, were celebrated at Corinth. But one receiveth the prize. Only one, the foremost, received a prize. Hence the lesson, so run, that you may obtain. Outstrip all others if possible.
