For Consider Him . . .

cross

Hebrews 12:1-3

Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about
with so great a cloud of witnesses,
let us lay aside every weight,
and the sin which doth so easily beset us,
and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith;
who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross,
despising the shame,
and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
For consider him that endured
such contradiction of sinners against himself,
lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.

FOR CONSIDER HIM . . .
Attentively observe and analyze every part of his conduct,
enter into his spirit, examine his motives and object,
and remember that, as he acted, ye are called to act;
he will furnish you with the same Spirit,
and will support you with the same strength.
He bore a continual opposition of sinners against himself;
but he conquered by meekness, patience, and perseverance:
he has left you an example that ye should follow his steps.
If ye trust in him, ye shall receive strength;
therefore, howsoever great your opposition may be,
ye shall not be weary:
if ye confide in and attentively look to him,
ye shall have continual courage to go on,
and never faint in your minds.
Clarke’s Commentary
