- Because of those who have been faithful, we are more faithful.
- Run with endurance = persistence
- They only way we can be persistent is to keep our focus on Christ. He is the one who birthed our faith (by His own death), and He is the only one who can perfect our faith (through the Holy Spirit).
- It seems that our faith and faithfulness will inspire future generations not to fall but to carry on (become strong). Faith brings more faith which leads to bigger and bolder faith… and it has continued and will continue.
