We have some friends that are triathletes. It seems that their entire lives are spent preparing for the “upcoming race”. They workout daily. They watch what they eat. They make sure that they get enough sleep. You see, all they do, all they eat is in preparation for their “race”. This is great for triathlons, but do we take that same approach when it comes to our spiritual walks?
In Hebrews 12:1-2 we read, “12 Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
Just like a triathlete, we are all preparing for a “race”. We must look at the days of our lives as days of training and preparation. If we want to “succeed” in the race, we must make sure that we dedicated each moment of each day to “lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us” so that we may “run with endurance the race set before us”.
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
