Surrounded by a Great Cloud of Witnesses: November 6, 2011

Scripture – Hebrews 12:1-3 (NIV)

1 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, 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, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.

For reflection:

  1. Who has been an inspiration to you in your Christian life?
  2. How can you learn from their life and incorporate it into how you live today?
  3. Take time to give thanks to God for the inspirational Christians in your life.  (Also, take time to thank and bless them in person if possible!)
