Day 322, November 18 - Hebrews 12

Click here for today's reading

1 So since we stand surrounded by all those who have gone before, an enormous cloud of witnesses, let us drop every extra weight, every sin that clings to us and slackens our pace, and let us run with endurance the long race set before us.

This is from the Basilica in San Jose, CA verse 1 comes to life when I look at this ceiling:

2 Now stay focused on Jesus, who designed and perfected our faith. He endured the cross and ignored the shame of that death because He focused on the joy that was set before Him; and now He is seated beside God on the throne, a place of honor.

This is such a great chapter. There are so many wonderful verses in this chapter.


  1. It is a great chapter. I like the ending:
    28 Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe, 29 for our God is a consuming fire.

  2. Hebrews 12
    24 You have come to Jesus, who brings the new promise from God, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better message than Abel’s.
    25 Be careful that you do not refuse to listen when God speaks. Your ancestors didn’t escape when they refused to listen to God, who warned them on earth. We certainly won’t escape if we turn away from God, who warns us from heaven.
