What a joy to be reminded of God's coming judgement. To me it is like the finish line of a long, long race, but one that has already been won, if only we complete it. And thank you God, for the great cloud of witnesses past and present you provide.
Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.
Hebrews chapter 12 verses one and two, if you are wondering.
