Run 2 Win

Good Morning.  Here’s Today’s Nugget to chew on:

“Run 2 Win”

Hebrews 12:1-2 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition(AMPC)

12 Therefore then, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses [who have borne testimony to the Truth [reference to the men and women of faith in Hebrews chapter 11], let us strip off and throw aside every encumbrance (unnecessary weight) and that sin which so readily (deftly and cleverly) clings to and entangles us, and let us run with patient endurance and steady and active persistence the appointed course of the race that is set before us,

2 Looking away [from all that will distract] to Jesus, Who is the Leader and the Source of our faith [giving the first incentive for our belief] and is also its Finisher [bringing it to maturity and perfection]. He, for the joy [of obtaining the prize] that was set before Him, endured the cross, despising and ignoring the shame, and is now seated at the right hand of the throne of God.

Further Thought: Today’s passage reminds us that we’ve been set up for success. To Run and Win, we must stay focused, remain patient, remove all distractions, and run our race looking at Jesus. Looking at the Word of God that’s our blueprint/road map to success. Remember, if the Word of God says it, and if we stay with the Word, God said in Jeremiah 1:12 that He’s watching over His Word to ensure it comes about.

Have a great day, and keep chewing on God’s Word.
