Keep Pressing on!

I recently came across this quote from the great Bible teacher G. Campbell Morgan,

“Time is flying. The sun is westering. I want the last lap to be the lap of a man who never forgets that he is a servant of Jesus Christ, taking orders from Him, doing His work and, what is very important reporting to Him only.” To that I found myself saying,” Amen!”

Currently I am rereading that wonderful study of the Epistle to the Hebrews by Andrew Murray entitled “The Holiest of All.” What a spiritual feast it is! Here I found confirmation of Campbell Morgan’s words. In 3:14 the author says, “We are God’house if we hold fast our confidence and pride in our hope firm to the end.”

In 3:14, “We share in Christ if only we hold our first confidence firm to the end.”

In 6:13-14, “We desire each one of you to show the same earnestness in realising the full assurance of hope until the end, so that you may not be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith & patience inherit the promises.”

No wonder the writer also exhorts us to “Run with perseverance the race that is set before us” The race we run is not a sprint but a marathon. May we all be encouraged to press on, so that, at the last we may be able to say with Paul, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.”
