There are a host of characteristics that we are called to demonstrate consistently - characteristics such as honesty, fairness, justice, not making judgments, responsibility - just to name a few.
The author of Hebrews compares living the Christian life to running a race. Think about the example of those who compete in the Olympic Games. We see the training that goes into preparing each participant for a game. That preparation begins at a very early age. It requires discipline, dedication, commitment and hard work. Running a consistent race depicts a believers struggle to run in the race of life.
Not unlike an NFL team that models consistency, we are called to do the same as we journey through our own daily lives. It does require a disciplined approach. It can help us tremendously if we can stick to the disciplines that we embrace - even in the difficulty moments in life. We may not always win every battle, but the war has already been won.
Followers of Jesus are the victors!
