We are all in a race called life. When we run this race we running for that ultimate goal- “well done my good and faithful servant.” As we start each day, we are reminded of how the cross set us up the ability to even have a race to run. Due to Jesus’s sacrifice, we get the opportunity to try again. His sacrifice gave us the ability to face every day knowing that no matter how poorly we run, we can still continue without condemnation. The Cross is the reminder, that to the best of our humanity, and through the strength of Christ, to continue to run well.
