TO EVERYONE WHOSE FATHER HAS JOINED THE CROWD OF WITNESSES
They may not be here physically, but there are with us in the spirit always there to cheer us up to keep the good faith and never give up until we hit the mark.
Today my dad has also gone to join these saints, so as many other fathers. Hebrews 12:1
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us.
WHO IS THOSE CROWD OF WITNESSES?
We are surrounded by the saints of the past in a unique way. It’s not that the faithful who have gone before us are spectators to the race we run. Rather, it is a figurative representation and means that we ought to act as if they were in sight and cheering us on to the same victory in the life of faith that they obtained. We are to be inspired by the godly examples these saints set during their lives. These are those whose past lives of faith encourage others to live that way, too. That the cloud is referred to as “great” indicates that millions of believers have gone before us, each bearing witness to the life of faith we now live.
My daddy, I know that you're there cheering us up and waiting for us to do those things you couldn't finish and to finish it completely, we will make you and all the other saints proud. Smiles*** I miss you, my love!!! Bukola Lukan
Jesus loves you, u 🥰
