Summary: Do not quit or give up on the game of life! Stay in the race!
“Stay in the Game, don’t Quit!”
1 Wherefore, since we are surrounded with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every encumbrance, and the sin which does so easily embarrass us, and let us pursue with constancy the course that is proposed to us:
2 having Jesus in our view, the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him, endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down on the right hand of the throne of God.
