Expressions: Hebrews 12:1-2

Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

    This is one of my favorites of your work. The image has helped me realize that while I know this verse well, I find that I do not simply pause and gaze at the cloud of witnesses who have faithfully served our Lord as often as I should. Let us consider these things and then fix our eyes upon Christ!

    Thanks for sharing your work Christy!
