“Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me.” Here we find an example of Jesus comforting his disciples. When He tells them not to be troubled, He is comforting them.

Hebrews 12 is a key passage in perseverance in the faith. Heaven is cheering us on. Jesus is the pioneer who inspires us to run the race without giving up. Jesus endured the cross-no greater obstacle or suffering could come to the sinless Son of God. Let us be inspired and encouraged! Preached at Elevation Church. Used by permission.
