Let us lay aside every encumbrance!

“Don’t let yesterday 
use up too much 
of today.”
Will Rogers
Hebrews 12:1-3
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.

*For consider Him*
who has endured 
such hostility by sinners against Himself, 
so that you will not grow weary 
and lose heart.
