LOOK UP, CHILD! ☝🏻✝️ 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, LOOKING TO JESUS, the Founder and Perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider Him who endured from sinners such hostility against Himself, so that you may not grow weary or fainthearted. 📖 Hebrews 12:1-3 ESV
Did you forget to consider, too?
Consider Jesus, above all, in all, through all?
To lay down what He has already taken to the cross? To turn your eyes on the One who, though rejected and despised, broke all barriers between us and God the Father?
Friend: ✝️In Jesus we have been yoked to the only One who could replace our burden of sin with His robe of righteousness.
✝️In Jesus, we died to an old self, a past identity, a former nature.
✝️In Jesus, we rose to newness, purpose and priesthood.
By the light of His glory and grace, He has laid the foundation of security and salvation. We cannot add to or take away from it, because we cannot make more perfect His perfection; more completed what is finished! 🙌🏻
By the light of His glory and grace, He will faithfully correct and disciple His children whom He loves, assuring us of His love and Fatherly mercy.♥️ Nobody else would have been broken for our healing.
Nobody else would have spilled his blood for our purity.
So... ✝️Let's work together in our growth and sanctification.
✝️Let's walk together in our witness and testimony.
✝️Let's turn our eyes upon Jesus:
