Psalm: 97


Hebrews: Not a very happy passage I grant you, but oddly encouraging. This metaphor of a race is a common vehicle – Paul used it a few times (1 Cor. 9:24; Galatians 2:2; 5:7; and 2 Tim. 4:7). Jesus did what we could not, namely that He endured the cross. We live in a world that does not seek to endure discomfort of any kind – imagine what a cross might do. It seems to me we live in a society (perhaps entitled?) which is so easily offended, by which I mean hurt. We have become the “Snowflake People”. We just can’t take it (hurt) today. What will we do if asked to die for Christ?

Gospel: John 7:37-46

New Testament: Hebrews 12:1-6

Old Testament: Isaiah 57:14-21
