Forgetting the Prize
1 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,
2 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. -Hebrews 12
Let us not run after the things of the world, forgetting the prize that awaits us when this earthly life is over. It is a most pathetic thing to see how most people spend their time and their energy for trifles of earth, while God is cast aside.
God has set mankind in a race and we are swiftly running each day toward the goal - heaven or hell. Either one or the other is our certain end.
We have a great cloud of witness in Heaven cheering us on. We should not give up the race but endure to the end.

The Great Throne
After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.
And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell bePhoto taken near our housefore the throne on their faces, and worshipped God,
Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen. -Rev. 7: 9-12
Clouds and darkness are round about him righteousness and judgment are the habitation of His throne - Psalm 97:2
And Satan trembles when he sees,
The weakest saint upon his knees.
William Cowper (1731-1800)

Jesus Christ went more willingly to the cross than we do to the throne of grace. Had not we need then provoke ourselves to duty? From - Heaven Taken by Storm

Here Am I Send Me
How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?

MY KING, MY GOD
Welcome to my new blog. Here I will be posting Bible passages mostly. Sure hope you enjoy the writings. God's Word will never fail. We need to practice reading it every day.
Below is a writing from Spurgeon who sums it up well. Never, never neglect the Word of God.
The Word will make your heart rich with truth, rich with understanding, and then your conversation, when it flows from your mouth, will be like your heart-- rich, soothing, and sweet. Make your heart full of rich, generous love, and then the stream that flows from your hand will be just as rich and generous as your heart. Above all, get Jesus to live in your heart, and then out of your heart shall flow rivers of living water, more rich, more satisfying than the water of the well of Sychar of which Jacob drank. Oh! go, Christian, to the great mine of riches, and cry to the Holy Spirit to make your heart rich unto salvation. So shall your life and conversations be a boon to your fellow man; and when they see you, your face will be like an angel of God. Wise men will stand up when they see you, and men will give you reverence. -Spurgeon
MY KING, MY GOD David although a King himself is subject to another, and the Creator'God who made him is his personal God. PSALM 5 5:1 Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation. 5:2 Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray. 5:3 My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up. 5:4 For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee. 5:5
The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity. 5:6 Thou shalt destroy them that speak leasing: the LORD will abhor the bloody and deceitful man. 5:7 But as for me, I will come into thy house in the multitude of thy mercy: and in thy fear will I worship toward thy holy temple. 5:8 Lead me, O LORD, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make thy way straight before my face. 5:9 For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part is very wickedness; their throat is an open sepulchre; they flatter with their tongue. 5:10
Destroy thou them, O God; let them fall by their own counsels; cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions; for they have rebelled against thee. 5:11 But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee. 5:12 For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him, should not perish but have everlasting life ...John 3:16
