Hebrews 12:1-3 Therefore, 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.
Sin is enticing and entangling. We are so easily tempted. Yet Jesus reigns. We must fix our eyes on Jesus. He Himself for the joy set before Him endured the cross. Our only hope is in Jesus. He died. Yet death could not hold Him! Christ is risen! And now, because of Him, we no longer stand condemned. We are no longer slaves of Sin. Christ is our Master. And He is a good master. All praise is due to Him. He is worthy of all praise. He is our Hope. He is our Rock. And because He first loved us, we love Him!
Christ is Risen He is Risen Indeed
