Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it. (1 Corinthians 9:24) Since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight and sin which clings so closely; let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. (Hebrews 12:1-2)
Jesus run His race here on earth just like us, therefore He is able to aid us in our race too. He won and got His prize, not its your turn, run in such a way that at the end you too will obtain your prize. Jesus showed us how to do so and win, so learn a lesson from Him; it will be hard, but he overcame didn’t He? You too will overcome if you keep your eyes on Him. He is already at the finished line waiting for you, what are you waiting for? You’re ready? Steady? Run to win!
