Run the Race: A study Through Hebrews 12 by Steve Pettit is an interactive study of Hebrews 12 describing the life of faith that is set before us. As Christians, we are to keep our focus on Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith. The starting point of our motivation is the Hebrews 11 cloud of witnesses who ran the race with distinction despite great obstacles. 'The strength to run the race is not found in self-effort or human willpower. It is discovered and experienced in our union with Christ by faith,' Pettit says.
