After listing the giants of faith in the previous chapter, it is now time for us to show and exercise our faith. By looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, let us continue to run with endurance, and ignore all the obstacles that could prevent us to reach the finish line. As we run, we will encounter trials, sufferings, distress in life, and the like, but we should not faint under these testings. Though our surrounding may be instruments to inflict sufferings, yet it may be a divine chastisements. Our heavenly Father has His hand in all, and it is always for our profit. Our whole life on earth is like in a state of childhood, imperfect as to spiritual things, so we must submit to the discipline of our Father God. Then, when we reached the perfect state in heaven, we shall be fully reconciled to all God. His correction is not condemnation; the chastening may be borne with patience that promote holiness in our lives. Let us not refuse the words of Christ who came from heaven to show God's love and mercy for His redeemed people. God bless.
