"I know not the way that's before me, The Joys or the griefs it may bring;What clouds are o'erhanging the future, What flowers by the wayside may spring. But there's One who will journey beside me, Nor in weal nor in woe will forsake; And this is my solace and comfort,He knoweth the way that I take."
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God...And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth" (John 1:1,14).
"I have spoken to you so that My joy might be in you and so that your joy be complete." Jesus says: "Remain in My love. Vs. 9. That means: "Trust in Me for your salvation." Finally, we are to love one another. We cannot produce true love. Only the Gospel can do that.

Keep your eyes on the finish line
1. Ecclesiastes 9:11 declares I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all
Philippians 3:14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
I am reminded of John the Baptist running his race I can imagine how hard it must have been to be an outcast no one to encourage him but yet determined to run the race that God set before him, he than past the baton to Jesus John 1 24-34 and Jesus through persecution beating being disrespected bruised for our iniquity took it all and yet forgave Luke 23:34 Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots. And yet through persecution Christ endured it all by keeping his eyes on the finish line I can imagine him running the baton all the way to the cross with His arms stretched out like a runner winning the race saying” It is finished “I am writing this to all believers to stay encouraged love you all with the Agape love of God stay encouraged we need each other no matter what denomination you are in we are all His lets finish this race strong, lets finish clean Love you all stay encouraged
Forever indebted to the King
