How encouraging is Hebrews 12 & 13! The race set before us to run with perseverance is one that:
- Others have run before us with perseverance – even in Old Testament times;
- Jesus has finished, having endured the cross and scorned its shame.
- It includes difficulties but as a sign of God’s love;
- Even weak and feeble folk can take part in it!
The Holy Spirit is instilling within us the life of Jesus, so that we are equipped and formed to do His will – a people worthy of being part of His new creation.
