Walking with Jesus is I like a marathon and not a sprint. Many people profess to be followers of Christ but starting the race is not the same as finishing the race. The Apostle Paul taught us that to follow Christ requires endurance and perseverance. In Hebrews 12 he tells us that we should “lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and run with endurance the race that is set before us, always looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith”. If we are going to receive the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus we must forget those things which are behind us and press on. If you fight the good fight and keep the faith, then you will hear the applause of Heaven as you finish your race.
