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, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. (Hebrews 12:1-2.)
That’s it. You win the race by running it with Jesus, the one who created and has already perfected your faith. That means the outcome of the race is posted, and at the finish line you’ll find that you won because of Jesus.
