Faith enables us to run the good race

Read Hebrews 11:32–12:2
Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight and the sin that clings so closely, and let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us. (verse 1)

When one prepares for a race, important considerations are required. The type of race must be addressed – whether on land, sea or through the air. The duration and tools needed for the race must also be considered. A successful outcome from the race depends upon how well-prepared the person is who runs the race. The metaphor of running a ‘race’ can be applied to the year-long journey for many Samoans. During the first week of each year, the Congregational Christian Church of Samoa conducts daily worship services called Lotu Talosaga (prayer services). The aim of these devotions is to praise God for the year that has passed, and seek his guidance for the new year ahead. Speakers from the congregations are invited to share their testimonies of thanksgiving for the new year, and offer inspiring messages of encouragement. These speakers include deacons, lay-preachers, youth and the elderly. This practice serves as preparation for the ‘race’ ahead – the yearlong journey for the parish and also personal individual journeys through many challenges and triumphs.

Our reading today names several biblical characters that add to the list of ‘champions of faith’ discussed earlier this week. Such people ran the good ‘race’ in their own contexts, because of their faith in God. We too can learn from them and prepare ourselves for the race of life we run daily. Our faith in God equips us with the tools necessary for good to overcome evil, so that we too can run the ‘good race’ just like those mentioned in today’s passage who faithfully served God.

† Lord, may our faith in you help us to run the good race in our daily lives, to serve and praise you always. Amene
