LOOKING UNTO JESUS 3




Heb 12:1-2

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, 2 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
NKJV

What does He mean when He says we should run with endurance: He is comparing our (Christian) life with athletes who are running a race on a track; the spectators are referred to here as the crowd of witnesses who were introduced in Hebrews 11.; they are those who through faith walked with God and obtained a place in His kingdom. They are those who have run a similar race to that you are running right now; they have lived in this world and have experienced similar things to what you are experiencing.
So the race we are to run with endurance is our life here on earth under God.
The reason why He instructs you to run this race with endurance is because like e every race, there is sometimes the tendency to want to give up and quit. You should know that it’s a race and not a stroll so there is a price.
