Endurance lags when we confuse the imminent, the urgent, the weights of the race with the race itself. We loose heart in the race when we look at the burdens and not at Jesus. Look at Jesus; remember the joy and the cross set before Him, and so receive endurance. We are the joy for whom He endured the cross; it was for you and me! And He is the joy for whom we run the race. “Selah” this for a moment!
The race is set before us, but so is Jesus. Let’s not run as if He wasn’t.
