  • Don't Lose Heart in The Race

This final message in the series, The Steadfast Heart, explores the exhortation to not lose heart in the race (of life). The Christian life is pictured as a race and the Christian as a runner. The writer of the New Testament letter of Hebrews urges his readers (and us) to run the race set before them with awareness, resolve, endurance and focus. We have a “running partner” who ran his race - a completed race that makes possible the sinner’s reconciliation with God. “Consider him (Jesus) who endured from sinners such hostility against himself, so that you may not grow weary or fainthearted.”
