A Cloud of Witnesses

runner1A great race is being run by each of us! And we are surrounded by onlookers, cheering us on! They watch with baited breath, anticipating the outcome of each, individual race.

You are nor as alone as you think you are. Not only is God watching, and the angels, but also the saints, the faithful ones from centuries past! And they all want you to make it!

Can you see the prophets, the apostles, Paul, those early church “fathers”, even your grandmother who died in the Lord, all the heroes of faith throughout time sitting on the edge of their seats with expectation and joy and encouragement as you pass each mile stone in victory?

Is there anything weighing you down? Anything hindering your run? Any sin trapping you? (pursuit of money and possession, unhealthy relationships, worries of worldly things, fear, pride, unforgivenes, bitterness, selfishness, praylessness, idolatry, sexual immorality, complaining, depression……) PUT IT OFF! Run with endurance, keeping your eyes focused on Jesus who is also cheering you on!

(Hebrews 12.1-2)
