As the end of the year gets closer and closer, for many of us, our strength to keep going gets weaker - we are tired and irritable, our levels of patience decrease, and all we can think of is to count down to how many days left till we can be on holiday.
At The Vine School we were reminded in assembly today that our goal is to finish well. Hebrews 12:1-2 says “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.”
So, in these last few weeks of the year let us be encouraged to look to Jesus daily for our strength and not grow weary of doing what we know is right.
To keep running the race and finish well!
