NUMBERS 3-5; HEBREWS 12

by Becky Hill Martin

“…let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith…” -Hebrews 12: 1-2

Can we take a minute to soak in the profound wisdom of Hebrews 12:1-2? “Let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith.” These words are like a spiritual power-up, reminding us to shed the weights that hold us back, both physically and metaphorically.

Imagine your life as a race – a unique journey tailor-made for YOU. It’s so easy to get bogged down by the challenges, doubts, and distractions along the way. This verse is a call to action! It’s an encouragement to be resilient, to persevere through life’s obstacles with unwavering faith. And fixing our eyes on Jesus keeps us aligned with our purpose and fills our hearts with the courage to overcome anything, because He overcame everything first.

Let’s toss aside the unnecessary baggage, lace up those faith sneakers, and hit the track with determination. With every step, let’s keep our gaze fixed on Jesus – our guiding light and the source of our unshakable faith. Together, we’re not just running a race; we’re embracing a divine journey, fueled by perseverance and faith in the One who leads us to victory.
