Many times life can feel like a marathon or even a sprint, so the analogy of us running in a race is an apt one.

Jesus, on whom our faith is founded, is the same one who will bring our race to completion on the day that He comes again.

Till’ our last breath on earth, let us not drop out or disqualify ourselves.

Is there anything that’s dragging you down and preventing you from crossing the finishing line? Discard it.

Don’t just start well — aim to finish well.

So that like Paul, the writer of Hebrews, you can say with confidence at the end of your life: “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.”
