Yet he has no root in himself, but is short-lived. When pressure or persecution comes because of the word, immediately he stumbles.
1 Corinthians 9:24
Don’t you know that the runners in a stadium all race,
but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way to win the prize.
Therefore, since we also have such a large cloud of witnesses
surrounding us, let us lay aside every weight and the sin that so easily ensnares us. Let us run with endurance the race that lies before us,
Galatians! Who has hypnotized you, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was vividly portrayed as crucified?
But many who are first will be last, and the last first.
