LIVIN’ the ReaLife is where kids lives show evidence (definition: the available body of facts or information indicating whether a belief or proposition is true or valid.) supporting their claim to be a follower of Jesus Christ.

In the Bible, Paul mentions that we are running a race. What do you have to do if you are running a race? Learn the right way to do things so you don’t get hurt. Practice.

Hebrews 12:1-3
Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus the founder great perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seat at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured from sinners such hostility against himself, so that you may not grow weary or fainthearted. 
I Corinthians 9:24-25
Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but one one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it. Every athlete exercises self-control in all things.
Other scripture where
“the race” is mentioned…
II Timothy 4:7, Galatians 5:7, Isaiah 43:31, James 1:12, Psalm 119:32
