Application for March 9-10, 2013 :: Hebrews 12:1


===

Hebrews 12:1

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

===

“So great a cloud of witnesses” Isn’t that encouraging? You are not alone. You aren’t the first to try this. They have already run the race set before them.

And what is that race? The race to glorify God. And our energy, our power source is our faith in the God that so many others have had faith in. I can only assume that the writer of Hebrews put in this list of witnesses in order to increase our faith.

So then what? Well, look down. Are you trying to run this weight while holding ten pound weights? Aren’t they slowing you down? Why are you carrying them.

Lay them aside.

Trust God. Follow in the righteous footsteps.
