As we end our week on becoming strong as Christians, we cannot leave this topic without considering our heavenly hope. We need to look to Jesus and look away from everyone else. Have you looked closely at this one you call your Savior? Do you see how seriously he took this race? Jesus himself stood his judgment. Sam endured the agony of Gethsemane. He himself endured the wrath of God. He himself took the greatest shame people could imagine. Deuteronomy (21:23) states: “Cursed be everyone who hangs on a tree.” You see, He didn’t ask us to. In Matthew twenty-eighth (28:20), Jesus said, “I am with you always, to the end of the age.” The Christian life is so expensive; but I tell you, dear listener, it is so, so important. And you are called to persevere. You are invited to lead this race. You are called to finish strongly. For more information and encouragement visit our website at share life dot today.
