Hebrews 12:1 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.
Yesterday was the 144th running of the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky. Which is said to be “the greatest two minutes in sports”. The field was open to 20 horses, with a purse of $2 million. People from all over the world were placing bets on their favorite horse in hopes of winning big money. As the bugler announces the beginning of the race, the anticipation grows. Who will be this year’s big winner?
As you run your race in life, know that God has placed a high wager on you. He placed his son, Jesus into this cruel world to run along side you. You don’t know where your race will take you or how it will end, but find comfort in knowing that you are not running alone. I am placing my bet on you this week! When you run life’s race with Jesus, you will be a winner as you cross the finish line to cheers of thousands who have gone before you.
