Reflections… a Scripture verse and inspiration for daily living [9/23]

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Hebrews+12%3A1-12&version=NIV
Passage: Hebrews 12:1-12
Verse: Hebrews 12:3 (NIV)
Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.

It seems we hope, or expect, our lives will be easier because of our faith in Jesus Christ.  However, in Him we see one who endured great pain at the hands of others.  As a disciple of His, should we really expect our lives to be different?  May we call upon Him to strengthen, encourage, and sustain us.  May He train us up in the way we should go to finish the race… and to finish it well. (inspired by Reflecting God – Devotions for Holy Living, WordAction Publishing Company)
