Don’t Be Silent; Speak Up!

Speak up for those who can’t speak for themselves,
    for the rights of all who need an advocate.
Speak up, judge righteously,
    defend the cause of the poor and the needy (Proverbs 31:8-9)

God’s Children

[H]e gave the right to become God’s children to everyone who believed in him. These people didn’t become God’s children in a physical way—from a human impulse or from a husband’s desire to have a child. They were born from God (John 1:12-13)

You Are Light . . .

You are light for the world. A city cannot be hidden when it is located on a hill . . . In the same way let your light shine in front of people. Then they will see the good that you do and praise your Father in heaven(Matthew 5:14, 16)

Looking Intently and With Determination

Since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses who have borne testimony to the Truth, let us strip off and throw aside everything that encumbers us, everything that is unnecessary and that sin which so cleverly clings and entangles us, and run with determined endurance and steady and active persistence, the appointed course of the race that is set before us,

Looking away from whatever will distract us, to Jesus, Who is the Leader and the Source of our faith and is also its Finisher, the perfecter of our faith. He, for the joy of obtaining the prize that was set before Him, endured the cross, despising and ignoring the shame, and is now seated at the right hand of the throne of God (Hebrews 12:1-2)
