The race set before us: God has staked out both the race and the goal. It is a lifelong process of becoming more like Jesus. Throwing off everything that hinders us: We will run well if we jettison the things that are likely to weigh us down. You would never see serious runners lugging their backpacks around the track. Many of the things that weigh us down are not wrong in themselves. It could be relationships that pull us away from God, people who sow doubt in our lives, or activities that disrupt our priorities.
This "cloud of witnesses" are not looking at us and our faith race but calling us to look at their example of faith and saying, "come on, follow us as we follow Him Jesus and be a witness for Jesus to those who follow you. He reminds us that salvation is the starting line not the finish line and calls us to do the works for which God saved us. We are saved by grace not works but we are judged and rewarded for our works. It is like taking off extra garments before the race. A new believer asked his pastor if he had to give up these things and the pastor said, "Not if you don't want to win. Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training.
