Run with endurance
Endurance in God is the key to godly life.
Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ! Our lives are not left to isolation. Whether we choose or not, our lives impact many around us. The impact maybe good, bad or so-so. The impression that we leave upon somebody do matter as a child of God. As our lives are witnessed, it does count how we live in Christ and encourage others to follow. But life is not always a smooth ride. Hurdles and obstacles, traps and snares, weaknesses and temptations, etc. are many that are always present in one’s life. With our own strength we cannot sustain even for a fraction. We need the strength to endure. That strength is made available to us in the grace of Lord Jesus Christ. Yes, He is our sustainer and strength. We can run the race that is set before us with His confidence and endurance. So, let us fully surrender to our sustainer Lord Jesus and live according to the will of Heavenly Father. Amen.
