Hebrews 12:1 (KJV) Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us
How can a reader of Hebrews 11 & 12, not stop in worship with these verses? You and I know about those sins which so easily beset us. That’s known. So is what Christ did for us on the cross. So is the mark of these witnesses on Christianity. So run! Run with this ol’ author, run with hundreds, nay, hundreds of thousands of Christians who also run for Jesus and live your life as an example of these before the next person you meet in this dark world.
Thought: Live your life as these great witnesses, willing to live for Christ first in all things.
Oh God, help me to place you first in my life so that I may run life’ race for you.
