(NKJV) “ … let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith …”
Every month, the SP staff identifies a character trait that we believe a worker of Christ should have in His vineyard. Last June, it was endurance. It is not only the staff that needs to run the race with endurance, which Christ has set before us, but each child does as well.
Endurance, according to the Oxford Dictionary, is the capacity of something (or someone in this case) to last or withstand wear and tear. How have we at SP, and you reading this newsletter, endured?
Endurance, according to Hebrews 12, is looking unto Jesus! Since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, we lay aside every weight and the sin which so easily ensnares us.
Today, we pause to look to Jesus, to remember His goodness, to lay aside the thoughts that weigh us down. We put on our helmet of salvation, and our armor, and keep running the race!
