The reading this morning came from Hebrew 12:1-3 which says :-
"1Therefore, 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, 2fixing 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. 3Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart."
This was Lt Bindy's last message before she and Marco move on to their next posting and she related some of the subject matter of her previous messages which she didn't really expect anyone to remember. Even if I don't remember them I still have my notes in this blog to remind if I ever care to look over them.
While we're all going through changes with some people moving on and new people arriving, we're all still running the same race. Some of us will be doing it somewhere else while others will be at the same place under the guidance of new leaders.
It is easy to let the craziness of life hinder us in our worship. Change can be a hindrance for what God wants us to do.
The passage today calls for us to fix our eyes on Jesus. Where is your focus today?
May God bless you richly this week.
