Hebrews 12:1 ” Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.”

I Corinthians 9:24 tells us to, “Run in such a way as to get the prize.” And to do so we are told to fix our eyes on Jesus who is our model or pattern to follow. For Jesus has already won the race of faith and obtained its prize when He died on the Cross for our sins and was raised to life on the third day. But this verse tells us to run with endurance, “the race marked out for us.” That’s because each one of us has a unique race to run that is specially marked out for us. My race may look very different from yours…but we all have the same Coach cheering us on and the same finish line to cross.
