Hebrews 12:2 Let us look to Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.
Believe it or not but “JESUS” is the answer for the world today. Above Him there is no other for Jesus is the way!
Jesus is from everlasting to everlasting.
All we see in this world and all the pleasures of the world is described in scripture as only for a “moment.
The Apostle Paul describes the christian life as a “race” that has to be run by all of us and what we need to understand is the fact that in this earthly race, there will be obstacles, hurdles, mountains and valleys to jump over and run through on our race track.
Yes, all of our tracks are different and each of us have to run our own race.
The fact about the Christian race is that we ALL MUST have JESUS in view ahead as we run this race.
Your race course is different from mine and mine is different from yours. We have different experiences, different places to go and things to do, but all of our races have the same starting and ending point and that is submission to Christ at the start and finish of our race and eternity with the Father once our race here on earth is completed if we keep Jesus in view and do not quit and give up.
The good news about our race is regardless of how hard and uphill the track may be nor how deep the tracks run below, God is with us all the way. He promise never to leave us nor forsake us but to be with us always, even unto the end.
The call today is to run our race well with endurance and patience for this is the Lord’s will concerning you and I.
Jesus ran the race that was set before Him with endurance so that you and I can have eternal life with Him. Jesus endured shame, suffering and pain even unto death so you and I can live again with Him.
Endurance is the key! Jesus endurance at the cross gave Him the position of “KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS” where He now sits at the right hand of God the Father in heaven interceding on behalf of the runners in the Christian race.
Is it your plan to spend eternity in heaven with God? Well, the race that is set before you to run is not an option!
Now is the time to start running with Jesus in view for He alone is the author and finisher of our faith.
Look unto Jesus as you diligently run this race with patience and endurance that is set before you.
It is the Lord our God who is with us on the race track! REJOICE PEOPLE OF GOD AS YOU RUN!
