“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, 2 looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith…”
This morning, I want us to finish strong the race that is set before us. It’s a brand new day, and it may seem like the same old race but I assure you, it is a new race today. Today, feel stronger, more alive, feel like you are a winner and this race is very doable. The route or path has been laid out for us, God has chosen my route and He has chosen your specific route. Now, we must lay aside everything that hinders us from running this race well and finishing this race strong. Endurance only comes to those who have proven themselves in the race by running daily and by focusing on the goal that is set before them. The race is not to the swift or the battle to the strong (Ecclesiastes 9:11) but to those who have focus and stamina to run the race skillfully. Today, in whatever you do, do it well and finish strong.
