Run the Race
“Let us throw off everything that hinders … and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us” (Hebrews 12:1b), exhorts the writer to the Hebrews. Perseverance is the key in our race. Scripture challenges us to stand firm, knowing that our labor for God is not in vain. We’re commanded to hold fast to our faith and to keep God’s ways. As we run the race with perseverance, we are filled with “inexpressible and glorious joy” (1 Peter 1:8) in our Savior in Whom we believe, even though we haven’t seen Him. Although the race is long and difficult, we have an eternal goal and consider any suffering or distress but “light and momentary troubles” (2 Corinthians 4:17).
Prayer: Lord, I thank You for the most indescribable gift, the gift of Your Son, Jesus. May Your love and generosity empower me to honor You with my life and blessings. Help me to run the race that you have set before me with perseverance. Through Christ I pray. Amen.
Blessings on your stewardship journey!
