Episode 17

You're a runner. Whether you agree or not, the bible says that you are a runner. Your life is a remarkable race and God wants you to run it well.
The Psalmist says that you are to run in the path of God's commands. Isaiah says that if you run, you will not grow weary. God calls our life the race that He marked out for you. You are to run it with perseverance, not speed. You've got to keep going, even when it gets hard. And the key to perseverance is to concentrate on Christ. Lets fix our eyes on Jesus and run the race.

Verses Mentioned:
"Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of our faith..." Hebrews 12:1-2
