“Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.”
We are in a race. However, it is not a sprint. It is a long distance race that is based on endurance. As a Believer, you must make up your mind that you are in Christ for the long haul. A long distance runner must not only train his body, but he must also condition his mind. We must prepare our minds to run daily, every day, one day at a time. We must incorporate Scriptures such as Galatians 5:22, 23; 2 Peter 1:2-10 and Hebrews 6:11, 12 just to mention a few. We must be able to run through the sun and through the rain, through the good times and the challenging, through good weather and bad, through anything that comes our way…and keep on running until we see Jesus face to face!
