Let us therefore run the race with endurance. Let us learn from the faithful witnesses. Let us lay aside every weight and sin that stops us. Let us look to Jesus, fixing our eyes on him who is the author and finisher of our faith.
Do not turn back to the world. Stop looking at your situation, no matter how hard or painful it may be, but go back to Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith. Get back to the promises of God’s Word. Get your bearing and direction from the Word of God.
Do not be distracted by your circumstances. Keep your eyes on Jesus, as you run the race. For at the end of the day, he who founded the faith in you will be faithful to finish it to a perfect completion in his perfect time.
