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. 2 Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Run the race. Fight the battle. Eyes fixed on the end game, focused on where we’ll spend eternity. Today is a step toward the end of the race. Go big in the things that please God, the things Christ taught us. Make the day worthy!
