Hebrews 12:1-2 (KJV)
Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
The Bible provides such very simple counsel for life here on earth. Among other things I find in Hebrews 12:
Lay aside our sins
It’s that simple. Considering the testimony of saints behind us and the race of life that is set before us, just lay aside our sins.
Look to Jesus
He is our Saviour, our example, and our source of strength and encouragement. Keep our eyes on Him
Be a deterrent of sin
Be salt and light. We don’t have to be obnoxious or arrogant. We can simply speak the truth in love, vote for the moral choices and pray for all in authority
Serve God graciously
With reverence and godly fear. Serve the Lord, making Him the priority of our life.
There is nothing complicated or difficult about this. All it takes is faithfulness.
