Heb 12:1-4. The author of Hebrews likens the Christian life to a race. Like an athlete, we must have a certain discipline and focus to run well, with our eyes on the prize, looking unto Jesus. The key element of the race is to ensure we are maintaining a living faith and not allow ourselves to slip into indifference, familiarity or unbelief. How can we ensure that we run well every day, all the way to the finish line?
