Every race has a finishing line – or what we might call a goal. For Christians, what do you think is the goal? In my humble opinion, it is to be like Jesus, to claim the free gift of salvation and to receive whatever rewards due to us, commensurate with our works.
and the coming one will come and will not delay;
but my righteous one shall live by faith,
and if he shrinks back,
my soul has no pleasure in him.”
