January 30 – Persevere to the End

Tags: faith race jesus
“And let us run with perseverance the Race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of Faith.” Hebrews 12:1b-2a (NIV)

The book of Hebrews is a letter written primarily to people of Hebrew background to encourage those who were Christians to live by faith. Chapter 11 records a list of many people who had lived by faith during the time before Christ was born. They were Old Testament saints who believed God by faith. Chapter 12 reminds us that these saints are witnesses to our faith walk. We are encouraged in today's verse to maintain that faithfulness. Life is like a race. For each of us there has been a starting line. For each of us there will be a finish line. God has determined the beginning and the ending and he has things for us to experience in between. We each have a purpose and we have work to do for God. But we remember, we cannot run this race on our own. If we are going to do well, we must keep our eyes fixed on Jesus, he is our example and it is our faith in Him that helps us finish this race strongly. Today and every day, let us keep looking at Jesus and not look away, he will help us persevere to the end.
