Run, Run, RUN! No Looking Back!

Hebrews 12:1-3
Therefore, 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,  fixing 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.  Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.

COMMENTARY
Across our 5 translations, this verse refers to Jesus as the pioneer, perfecter, author, finisher, and champion of our faith. Jesus is worth whatever perseverance, whatever challenge, whatever struggle or hardship we must face. Jesus did not allow the difficulty of going to the cross to stop Him from going there for our sake. This picture is to encourage us in our trials and struggles, to be strengthened in Him who is with us and who has provided us help via the Holy Spirit of God. Do not give up! Jesus is with us and He is no stranger to the roads we are on.
