Hebrews 12:3-4
Consider how he endured such opposition from sinners, in order that you may not grow weary and lose heart. In your struggles against sin you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding blood.

Sometimes life is hard. There seems to be so much opposition to leading a moral life. Sometimes life’s twists and turns knock us to the ground. There are so many temptations to lure us away from being our true-selves and instead to build false-selves based on our egos’ insatiable desires for power, prestige and possessions. Jesus gave us the ultimate example of letting go of all the stuff that will never truly satisfy our souls. He lived a life of love, mercy, forgiveness and compassion while standing up for justice…despite the most unfair persecution and finally death on a cross. Through it all He only expressed God’s love and forgiveness in return. He is the one who invites us to bring our burdens to Him so that He can give us rest (Matthew 11:28). Jesus shows us a God who will never abandon us in our struggles. Let this Good News settle in your soul.
