Our Scripture of the day today is the passage we will be looking at this coming Sunday. I am sending it out because it is one of those particularly rich and memorable passages, which I hope will encourage and inspire you, and because it contains many words and phrases and ideas that people may have questions about. I would love to hear back from you your thoughts, questions, applications, or even struggles with this passage. How does it inspire, or encourage, or even frustrate you? I’d like to know. Hebrews 12:1-2:
Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.
Tomorrow I start a several week tour through the “one another commandments.” I hope that will prove edifying and encouraging and challenging to you.
