Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith (Hebrews 12:1-2).
In the Christian life, endurance is essential for moving forward into the promises of God. Yet have you noticed how various obstacles can try to hinder your movement forward?
Shame, the past, current struggles, all of these things can be hurdles on the path before us. But no matter what you may face in the future, or are up against today, I want to encourage you to fix your eyes on Jesus. He has overcome the world, and in Him, so can you!
Jesus has gone before you and made a way for you to persevere to the end, to finish the race well. So don’t give up! Fix your eyes on Jesus and keep going!Christine Caine – First Things First

-Philippians 3:10-14 KJV.
