“Run, Christian, Run!”
No one ever said living the life of a devoted follower of Jesus would be easy. The writer of the New Testament book of Hebrews in Chapter 12:1-2 likens it to running in a marathon race until we see Jesus face to face. The Holy Spirit coaches us through this Scripture passage by giving us three instructions on how to run.
(Heb. 12:1a) Run the race of life with the encouragement of others.
(Heb. 12:2) Run the race of life with the goal in mind.
The Big Idea: In the great race of faith, glance back but gaze forward at Jesus while you run with all you’ve got!
My take home:
