Hello, John and
I am heartened
to know that my brothers and sisters in the LORD are receiving and
sharing His Word! Our Father has so much to say to us to
encourage our hearts for these last laps. The last two laps of an
Olympic Marathon are always in the stadium.
It is written,
"Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a
cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which
doth so easily beset [us], and let us run with patience the race that
is set before us,
"Looking unto Jesus the author
and finisher of [our] faith; who for the joy that was set before him
endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right
hand of the throne of God."
"...[B]ecause I live, ye shall live also." John 14:19b
