Hebrews 12:1-3: Running the Race

c28b1178-1d50-4b7e-8cde-a7b397334842

 

Hebrews 12:1-3 (NRSV): The Example of Jesus
1 Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight and the sin that clings so closely, and let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us, 2 looking to Jesus the pioneer and perfecter of our faith, who for the sake of the joy that was set before him endured the cross, disregarding its shame, and has taken his seat at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Consider him who endured such hostility against himself from sinners, so that you may not grow weary or lose heart.

Queries
In what sense is Jesus the pioneer and perfecter of our faith?
Why were/are people hostile toward Jesus?
What “race” is set before you? What “weights” inhibit your ability to run this race?
