Day Five – “Consider Him”

Friday, March 26th, 2010

Hebrews 12:1-3

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.

Reflection:

As we have seen throughout this week’s Transmissions, Jesus ministered with a heart full of compassion and love that was undeterred in the face of increasing hostility and rejection.  Even to the very end, Jesus was determined to bring true restoration to His people.  It is Christ who is the Author, Champion, and Initiator of our faith – through Jesus’ ultimate act of compassion on the cross, he has cleared the path of faith for us to follow after Him.  And he is the One who will perfect our faith, bringing us through faithfully to the finish.  As we live out the race marked out for us, we can fix our eyes on Jesus - He is our example, and the One who sees, hears, and knows us through and through.

Responding to the Transmission:

Let’s consider Christ today – consider all that He has endured, all that He has done, and all that He has made possible.  As we reflect in this way, we can be renewed in our hearts and strengthened in our inmost beings to live this life of faith paid for by Christ’s blood.  Let’s pray for God’s Kingdom to come in greater measure!  And let’s pray that God would use our lives like never before to accomplish His will.  May God’s will be done in our communities, our churches, and in His churches all over the world!
