“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. ” (Hebrews 12:1 NLT) We might not have big crowds watching us as Christians, but you can bet we are being watched. Family, friends, co-workers and such are just waiting for us the slip up on our Christian walk. Oh, we will, we all do; but that doesn’t mean we stop trying. It takes time to strip off all sin that weighs us down, but we are working towards glory and not staying stagnant in our sin. So, let them watch; let them judge for we know we are running a good race for God. If perhaps we show a few people how we are trying and how the race is worth it, we might show the gospel of Christ with our actions and bring more into the kingdom. Don’t give up my friends; let them watch you run the race God has set before you. God Loves Ya;)
Don’t Give Up!
