The New Testament writers often use athletic imagery, e.g., running a race, to describe the Christian life. In fact, our theme verse for 2021 is Hebrews 12:1-2, and it’s chock-full of such imagery: “Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and the sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.” The Christian race is a marathon, not a sprint, and we’re going to take a Sunday morning out of every month to compare/contrast the Christian race to a cardio-based race, using Scripture and experience. We’re looking to encourage every Christian to go the distance.
