Our spiritual journey with Jesus requires endurance. The writer of Hebrews has written this sermon so that these Christians would not give up or grow weary. In Hebrews 12 he has told them that they are surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses which should compel us to lay aside the weights we are carrying in this life and the sin that clings so closely to us. Our focus is to be placed on Jesus who suffered as he did so that we would not give up. Now the writer is going to speak to us about how to look at our difficulties and suffering. The author is helping us look at our trials, hardships, and suffering in a different way so that we will have the endurance needed to run this spiritual race. Let us read Hebrews 12:3-13.
