“There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” -Romans 8:1
Walk after the Spirit. Yes we might make mistakes. We might fail sometimes. But if we keep coming to Church if we keep reading our Bible if we keep Praying to GOD. Keep coming after the things of GOD. Then we are walking in the Spirit. Don’t let condemnation slip in. Don’t let your short comings stop you from Walking in the Spirit.
“But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.” -Matthew 24:13
We got to Endure, Push through the hard stuff. Weather the Storm. There will be Peace after it passes. It gets bumpy for a while. But then Peace.
Paul talks about running a race with in – 2 Timothy4:7-8
“I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:””Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.”
The Word Course means Race. He says it’s a Race. Not a sprint. It’s not just 1 or 2 miles but a MARATHON with many laps. As we run the race we will fall down and get bumps and bruises. We will get nicked up. But we got to keep running. There is a reward. A Crown of Righteousness. So no matter what lap your on. Whether it be lap 1 lap 5 or lap 305. Just keep running for JESUS. It’s worth it. Amen.
