Show Notes

Let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus." Heb

12:1-2 NKJV

The men and women who made the greatest impact on the world were those who were totally focused and sold out to their vision.

John Wesley, founder of the Methodist Church, once said, "If I had three hundred men who feared nothing but God, hated nothing but sin, and were determined to know nothing among men but Jesus Christ and Him crucified, I would set the world on fire." Jonathan Edwards, whose ministry sparked the Great Awakening in America, made this his life's motto: "Resolution One: I will live for God. Resolution Two: If no one else does, I will." C. T. Studd, one of England's greatest athletes, shocked the world when he gave up fame and fortune to be a missionary to China.

"If Jesus Christ be God and died for me, then no sacrifice can be too great for me to make for Him," he explained. Missionary Jim Elliot, who died as a martyr in South America, said,

"He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose." The day you were born, God had a track for you to run on. But to win, you must get rid of (1) anything that weighs you down, and (2) anything that trips you up. "Let us strip off and throw aside every encumbrance (unnecessary weight) and that sin which so readily (deftly and cleverly) clings to and entangles us, and let us run with patient endurance and steady and active persistence the appointed course of the race that is set before us, looking away [from all that will distract] to Jesus" (vv. 1-2 AMPC).
