"Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abides alone: but if it die, it brings forth
much fruit." John 12:24
You can tell the size of a Christian by what it takes to stop him. Hebrews 12:1 says we are to "run
with patience the race that is set before us." And this word "patience" is not used in the sense that
we use the word. It literally means "endurance."
Everybody knows that a runner is going to win or lose primarily by his endurance. You cannot
quit. When it hurts, you cannot quit. When your lungs are on fire, you cannot quit. When your
feet feel like lead, you cannot quit. When your sides ache, you cannot quit! You'll never be a
spiritual athlete if you're a quitter! No pain. No gain.
Thank God for His power that enables you to run the race and gain the victor's crown!
Have a wonderful and blessed Sunday!
Lots of Love!!!
