Today’s reading is from the book of Hebrews, chapter 12, verses 1 through 3. As we hear it together, I wonder what God’s Spirit wants me to hear about faithfulness?
1 A huge cloud of witnesses is all around us. So let us throw off everything that stands in our way. Let us throw off any sin that holds on to us so tightly. And let us keep running the race marked out for us. 2 Let us keep looking to Jesus. He is the one who started the journey of faith. And he is the one who completes the journey of faith. He paid no attention to the shame of the cross. He suffered there because of the joy he was looking forward to. Then he sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 He made it through these attacks by sinners. So think about him. Then you won’t get tired. You won’t lose hope.
Faithful God, we pray that the words we heard today with our ears will be planted inside us, in our hearts. Please help these words to grow in us and to blossom into good, faithful fruit in our lives. May all that we do and say give honor and praise to you, our faithful and loving Creator. In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen.
