“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
From Corrie ten Boom, Holocaust survivor and author of, “The Hiding Place” (available on Amazon).
“So often people say to me ‘Oh, but Corrie you have a great faith!’ But I have not a great faith. I have a small faith, but it is a faith in a great God! It is not written in the Bible, “Let us look unto our faith.” In Hebrews 12 it says, ‘Let us look unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith.’
“Look around and be distressed, look within, and be depressed, look at Jesus and be at rest.”
