Finish The Race

Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:1-2

The Christian Walk is not just a daily stroll, its a lifelong race. Its a race that many will grow weary and tired, and many will take their eyes of Jesus. However we are called to endure the race because Jesus endured the cross for you! Dont lose focus or take your eyes off Christ, put your hope in the author and finisher of our faith Jesus!

Jesus said “ Deny yourself, Take up your cross daily and follow Christ” (Luke 9:23) Jesus didn’t say walk with Him once and you’re done, it’s a daily walk of taking up your cross. It’s a long marathon race , that if we don’t stay focused on Christ, were going to stray off the narrow path

For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds. Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin. And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him: Hebrews 12:3-5

As the old theologian Leornard Ravenhill said “ Our Lord was crucified why would we think we would have an easy life”? Many Christians today are looking for the easy road to eternal life, it doesnt exist! Satan wants to destroy you, Satan wants to tempt you away from The Lord

Satan was willing to try and war with Christ, why would you think he would be afraid of you? Satan wants you to go to eternal damnation, yet the carnally minded look upon all these sins as candy. Pleasing to the flesh but catastrophic to your soul

For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? Hebrews 12:6-7

Dont be afraid to be disciplined by God, just as a parent disciplines their child because they love them, God will discipline you because he loves you also. He disciplines us to keep us on the narrow path , to give us eternal life. If He didnt care he would just let us all send ourselves to Hell

But the rebellious flesh hates discipline, we see this throughout the world today. The world loves chaos and disorder, this is a Spirit of evil. The true disciple loves discipline , endures the race until the end in Jesus Name Amen
