From R. Kent Hughes’ 10 Disciplines Of A Godly Pastor.
Point 8:

Discipline of Perseverance
Hebrews 12:1–3 presents a picture of perseverance in four commands.

  • Divest! “Lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely” (v. 1a).
  • Run! “. . . with endurance the race that is set before us” (v. 1b).
  • Focus! “Looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith” (v. 2).
  • Consider! Our life is to be spent considering how Jesus lived (v. 3).
