Run the good race
is what I've called you to do,
to go forward with all I've given you,
with the strength I give.
It is not your struggle alone,
the living of this life.
I run beside you.
Blessed is the man who sees Me at his side.
For I give what is needed.
The victor of the race receives a crown.
In the spiritual realm it's one of glory.
You, too, are glorified with Me
in My great heavenly realm.
You know the rules. Continue on!
Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud
of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily
ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us
