"Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it."
We must stay focused on following Jesus in this race of life as we are all approaching finish lines. The longer we run, the more narrow the path becomes and many drop out, and we find ourselves alone with Christ. Stay the course. Don’t compromise His ways. May we proclaim with Paul, "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith."
Finishing the Frosty 25K at Salem Lake in Winston Salem yesterday was no different from any other race; I had to become intense and focused to overcome fatique, aching, tight muscles, and endure pain to finish strong. (Not to mention hair highlighted with icicles…no charge :))
How much more I desire to finish strong in His race. I hope you do too.
