Run the race with endurance

Helping Each Other Run the Race

    I like to run but I get off track pretty easy. It is easy to quit because of aches and pains, time restraints, kid’s activities, etc. But right now I’m on track and I want to share with you three reasons that I am. Here they are: Cheryl, Ted and Paul. 

    Cheryl, Ted and Paul do some running (or cycling). That encourages me to do what I think I should do. From time to time we talk about what we are doing (or not doing!). Honestly, the few words we exchange every couple weeks or so is sometimes the difference between me quitting or running on! I hate telling Ted, “No, I didn’t run this week!” 

    It works in a similar fashion spiritually. We need, and others need, just a little bit of encouragement. Christians need fellowship and interaction with one another. Christianity was not meant to be lived in isolation. It is a good song, but it is not merely My God and I! In a sense, it is My God, My Brother, and I. Part of the strength of the early church must have resonated from being together so frequently (Acts 2:46). 

    The Hebrew writer says that we are to run the race with endurance (Heb. 12:1). That sounds like a solo performance, doesn’t it? If we look at that passage more closely though, we see that he alludes to the “great cloud of witnesses” that surrounds us. In the context this has reference to the many great men and women of God who have crossed the finish line and who are portrayed as cheering on those who are still running the race. 

    Someone may need you to help them keep on running! Consider small and simple ways you can encourage a brother or sister in Christ. Remember that every Christian needs encouragement. Remember also that you will be encouraged just as much or more than the one you seek to encourage!
