Our sermon was on theses verses from Hebrews 12. They've always been favorites of mine, and it was encouraging to be reminded of those who have gone before me, to see how the Lord was faithful to them in all His promises....To be reminded of who I am to keep my eyes on, and that not only am I running towards Jesus, but He is also with me as I run the race, at my right hand.
"Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, 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 is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds."
We ended by singing these verses from Psalm 119 -
I chosen have the perfect way of truth and verity: Thy judgments that most righteous are before me laid have I. I to thy testimonies cleave; shame do not on me cast. I'll run thy precepts' way, when thou my heart enlarged hast.
