We’ve talked about the race over and over again these past couple of weeks and guess what?!?! IT AIN’T STOPPING!!! We are running a race and this race is more important than anything we’ll ever do in this life! What matters most is that we run the race and run the race in the best possible way!! I watched this video and just when I thought I was getting “raced out” from all of these messages, there it is! John Piper speaks the truth found in these verses from Hebrews 12 in such a real, powerful and convicting way! Don’t just watch this today to say you watched it, really let it sink in and ask yourself, how does this apply to my life and the way I’m running the race? And be honest with your answer because to run this race well, it takes truth from yourself and as we embrace God’s truth! No more half-butting around, we have a race to run and a race to run WELL!!!! LET’S GOOOO!!!!!!
‘Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured from sinners such hostility against himself, so that you may not grow weary or fainthearted. ‘
