Each Christian is running in a marathon. Our Christian life is not a sprint, but a marathon which demands our best always.
Dear people, we must never allow ourselves to forget that we are running a marathon. As we run, we have been preceded by a “great cloud of witnesses.” These witnesses passed the baton, anticipating that we would succeed because they had prepared the way, because they had successfully completed the earlier laps. Those who have gone before rightfully expected us to take up the baton and continue the race, the race that will not be completed until that day the Master returns for His own. Let each follower of the Master hear the call to push himself, to push herself, to excel. Let each of us refocus our eyes, looking to Christ our Saviour who even now is at the finish waiting to receive us into glory.
