Hebrews 12:1-2 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, (2) Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
We Need To Look Back To Calvary
John 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.
Jesus did for us, in our place, what we could not do for ourselves. He satisfied the demands of God for breaking the Law, He paid the sin debt for all who would believe and put their trust in Him.
When we look back at Calvary it should remind us of how much God loves us and cares for us. It should also remind us that Jesus has power even over death. If He can overcome death he can overcome anything He is eternal.
When you begin to look around and things become a little scary, look back to Calvary. The same power Jesus has to defeat death is available to you each day to give you victory.
