Keep going! You’ve got this!!! You can do it!
We are handing out encouragement cards at the New York City Marathon on November 3, 2019! The New York City Marathon is the largest in the world. Please pray the runners will know the joy of perseverance and finish their race! Running 26 miles is quite a feat!
May we be encouraged by the One with the greatest endurance of all: Jesus! He ran the ultimate race, the race against sin, death, hell and the grave. When He gave His life for our sin on the cross, He crossed the ultimate finish line – into eternal life. As you run with perseverance the race marked out for you, may you be encouraged by Christ and His great love for you!
“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, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross,scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.3 Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.” – Hebrews 12:1-3
