Each week this year, I am challenging myself to memorize a Bible verse (or verses). This week’s verses are Hebrews 12:1,2…
“Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses (as listed in ch.11), let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
From these 2 verses, we are shown what will help or hinder our spiritual journey:
1- The witnesses who encompass us (v.1a) These help!
2- The weights that encumber us (v.1b) These hinder!
3- The weariness that encounters us (v.1c) This hinders!
4- The winner who encourages us (v.2) He helps!
Do you have these verses memorized yet?
