Run Your Race (Hebrews 12:1)Bro. Mike Meade, February 4, 2018
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Do you consider yourself to be a runner? Maybe you do go out for a morning jog every day. Maybe you've never competed in a 5k, or a marathon. Maybe the mere thought of running causes your heart rate to rise and your breathing to become labored. But, did you know that if you are a Christian, then you are indeed a runner?
The book of Hebrews tells us that we are to lay aside the weights of the sins that hinder us and run the race that is set before each of us. Maybe you're walking your race, or maybe you are going through a patch of time where you feel as though you are crawling along. Maybe you're standing still today, or even walking backwards!
Chin up, Christian; you're a runner now! Lace up those shoes, find your motivation, and start by putting one foot in front of the other, then another, then another. And before you know it, you will be running your own race and leaving Satan in your dust!

1Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, (KJV)
