Imagine an athlete who participates regularly in sporting events -- a football player, for example. He and his teammates want to win every game, and their ultimate goal is to win a championship. To reach that goal requires that he and every other player on his team preform to the very best of their ability.
In order to perform at the highest level, each player must prepare himself well and do what is expected of him. He studies the team's playbook in great detail, so that he knows every formation and what he is suppose to do on every single play. He goes out with his team and practices these plays many times until executing them becomes almost second nature. He works out regularly to build his strength and improve his endurance, so he will not tire as easily. He knows the rules of the game and strives to remain disciplined enough to avoid being penalized from breaking those rules. He and his teammates work at how to use time well, so that the clock does not run out at the end of the game while they are still behind in the score. He keeps his eyes always focused on the prize.
The life of a Christian is a lot like that -- at least it ought to be. - from Chapter 1.
