Lasagna and Other Things Worthwhile

Everything worthwhile requires perseverance. An NBA championship, summiting Everest, lasagna, a fixed and well running car, building a house, training kids to make wise choices, completing a LEGO starship and the most rewarding by an infinite measure: the prize of Christ-apart from perseverance, none of these are attained.

1Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,2looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Consider him who endured from sinners such hostility against himself, so that you may not grow weary or fainthearted.

Hebrews 12:1-3

Many have gone before us in this life of faith. They are an example to us.

Many things weigh us down. We must remove them.

Many grimy sins stick to us. One at a time, we peal them off.

There is a hard race in front of us. We can endure!

Jesus is our perfect example. We fix our eyes on Him.

We have a cross to bear. We can embrace it because of our joy in Jesus.

Opposition is hostile. Contemplating Jesus keeps us going.
