Hebrews 12:1-2 "Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God."
Reflection. Yesterday we read a portion from Colossians about our mind-blowing Lord Jesus. Today we fix our eyes on the pioneer and perfected of faith; the Lord Jesus. He knew the Cross was ahead and yet went to it willing. His reward is the throne. We benefit from His reward; life eternal.
Prayer. Lord Jesus Christ, please aid us in throwing off all that stops our growing in love and grace. May we trust in you and follow your example of self-sacrifice. Amen.
