Theme sentence: In this race of life, lay aside all that hinders, and fix your eyes on Jesus.

Aim sentence: If you want to remain faithful to the end you’re going to have to stay focused on Jesus.

Run with perseverance

Our life of faith is pictured as a marathon that God has marked out for us. All Christians are called to run it with endurance. Keep going.

Throw off all that hinders

In this race, we need to get rid of all that will slow us down or trip us up.

Fix our eyes on Jesus

As we look at Jesus’ life of faith and all He did to secure us that strengthens us to endure. The more we reflect on His beauty and grace the less all the other things that hinder us will appeal to us.

Now what?

On the cusp of a new year, there are many things that might try to hinder our faith. We need to pray that as we behold Jesus, that His magnificence will fill our eyes with joy and wonder to run with perseverance this race of faith not just because Jesus is at the finish line, but because Jesus IS the finish line.
