... 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, let us FIX our eyes ON JESUS, the author and perfector of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross.....Hebrews 12:1-2
"the race marked out for us".....we each have our own journey, a race God Himself marked out for each of us, very different from each other, but we are all striving for the same goal....JESUS
"run with perseverance"...Im really learning the meaning of "perseverance" because of chronic pain. Perseverance means dont quit!
"Fix our eyes on Jesus"......a heavenly glimpse of our Lord while we run! Look straight ahead, not turning to the right or to the left..but straight ahead. The enemy will try his darnest to get your attention..dont cave!!!
"for the joy set before Him".....thats you and me!! We are His joy!
Isnt that something? He thought of you and me while going through the agony on the cross, He did it for us ....personally.
What an amazing love that is!
Thank you Jesus. :)
