Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 06/12/16

This week’s scripture is from Hebrews:

Jesus is Risen“And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us…”  (Hebrews 12:1b)

Though we are to keep our eyes on Jesus as we work out our salvation, each of us has our own path which He has put us on, and each runs the race God has set. Some roads have many ups and downs, even valleys and mountain tops; some have long, long stretches over long, long distances; some have roads with many twists and turns, and some have unexpected detours or delays. We may not know what is around the next bend or over the next hill, but we know if we are following Christ, He is there ahead of us and we can keep going. Therefore, let us persevere, for though each life is different and each road is different, all that travel with Christ reach the same goal; let us run with Christ the race He set out for us.

May the Lord renew your strength to run the race.
