The Last Lap - Perth 2012
I think I have got this obsession with maple trees recently. Maybe because it’s in Autumn and it’s one of the nicest times when the leaves turn bright red and the wonderful thing about it that the leaves shine brighter than the flowers(if there were any)
Hebrews 12:1-3 would be the verse that I would be reminded of when I see this picture. It feels like it is the last lap, the last one standing. And as the Author of Hebrews said, let us run this race for Him and set our eyes just upon him.
12Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame,and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
For those of my friends who still have the last one or two papers, press on! It’s literally the last lap and that goes for anyone anywhere else.
Study, work, live for Christ and never lose sight.
