Let us run with endurance the race that is set before us. - Hebrews 12:1
I had the joy this spring to be led through a ten week study of Hebrews. This study has changed my perspective of so many things. I highly recommend it! Immediately prior to that, Andy covered the cost of following Jesus. I think it was here that Andy said, after reading the verse above, "we all have a race that God is setting before us." This concept has stuck with me for quite some time now. I have a race. God is setting before me a race for me to run, and I am to run it with endurance. A couple of weeks ago, we--God and me--went through quite a journey, and He taught me a little more about my race.
