As we run the Christian race, what is our goal? The writer explained the goal in Hebrews 12:14: Peace with all men, and holiness before the Lord. These two goals remind us of our Lord’s high priestly ministry— King of peace and King of righteousness (Heb. 7:1–2).
It requires diligence to run the race successfully lest we “fail of the grace of God”. God’s grace does not fail, but we can fail to take advantage of His grace. So let us come to the Lord with reverence and awe knowing our Lord is a consuming fire.
Hebrews 12:14 'Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord.'
