Who Are We In It For?
By Rusty Wilson
Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
I believe we all know there is much work to be done before the return of Jesus. One thing we need to think about is the race, the effort to run the appointed course that has been set before us to run in victory to finish the work God has given to us to finish.
When we move forward, we must remember Who we are in this work for. We must make sure we don’t get sidetracked and get off the path that is set before us onto another path that will not glorify God.
We must make sure it’s not a path of selfishness, a path that leads into rebellion against God that causes us to be in sin. We must lay aside the weight that we have allowed ourselves to pick up.
We must keep our focus on God and His Word and complete the task God has in store for us. It’s a great work and as we focus on it, work towards the completion of it, we will run and complete it in the BLESSING of God. He has supplied everything we need to complete the race, the course that He has appointed and anointed us to run.
