Those Before Us

Hebrews 12:1 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,

I discovered a box of letters my dad wrote to his mother every day he was in college in the early 1920’s. Most of his Monday letters told her about the sermons he heard Sunday morning and Sunday evening. He quoted parts that were very meaningful to him. Reading about what formed his spiritual walk was very meaningful and encouraging. Hebrews 12:1 is referring back to the 11th chapter of Hebrews known as the “faith chapter.” It is a wonderful chapter to read often, reminding us of those who went before us on the path of faith in God. I marvel at how they walked since they walked before Jesus came, taught, died, rose and sent His Holy Spirit to help us on our walk. They could only hope for the promise We have received the promise. When things seem hard there is really nothing to complain about. We are blessed.
