Since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight and the sin that clings so closely, and let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us. - Hebrews 12:1 (NRSV)

I’m not a huge fan of running because I’m not very good at it. Every time I get on the treadmill, I think to myself, I just need to build up my endurance. Eventually I’ll run a mile in under ten minutes.
The Bible speaks a lot about endurance. Paul...

Today's Prayer
Dear God, help us to set our sights on the prize of eternal life through Christ Jesus so that we may endure and even overcome our struggles. Amen.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
