“All that I do, I do for the sake of the gospel promises, to win myself a share in them… Every athlete must keep all his appetites under control; and he does it to win a crown that fades, whereas ours is imperishable… I buffet my own body, and make it my slave; or I, who have preached to others, may myself be rejected as worthless.” (I Corinthians ix, 23, 25, 27)
