“Therefore, since we also have such a large cloud of witnesses surrounding us…”

‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭12:1‬ ‭aHCSB‬‬

What is this cloud of witnesses? Back up to chapter 11 to see:

“By faith Enoch…”

“By faith Noah…”

“By faith Abraham…”

“By faith Sarah…”

“By faith Isaac…”

“By faith Jacob…”

“By faith Joseph…”

“By faith Moses…”

“By faith Rahab…”

There wasn’t even enough space for the writer to tell us about all the others who pressed forward in faith and obedience against unimaginable odds. What amazing men and women to inspire us! They are our spiritual legacy! Our HERITAGE! Now let’s read Hebrews 12:1 in full and be encouraged as we picture them cheering us on:

“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 [patience, long-suffering or suffering long] the race marked out for us,”

‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭12:1‬ ‭NIV‬‬‭🚦
