The Examples We Are to Follow: Gospel Today Devotional - 25th May, 2022

The desire, and decision to do something becomes easy when you do have patterns to follow. Nothing becomes difficult most especially when you have people who did the same thing before you or people doing it at the time you're able to start. It gives you the confidence, the hope, and then the belief that of a truth,  you wouldn't find it difficult to do that which is expected of you, isn't it?

The Examples We Are to Follow: Gospel Today Devotional - 25th May, 2022

I remember clearly, that in subjects like Quantitative reasoning, and Verbal aptitude back then in Primary school, and I believe many of us remember this as well, that before we begin to solve anything, there would be some laid down examples for us, right? We only begin solving after we must have carefully studied the examples that were given to us. This made the work so very easy for us to do.

In our study today, by the help of the Lord, we shall be considering the topic, The examples we are to follow. I trust that the Lord would reveal to you and I that which he wants us to see, and at the same time help us to abide by it. The anchor text for today's devotional is seen below, 

"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". (Hebrews 12:1).

To begin with, it is essential for us to understand that in the preceding chapter, that is, in the eleventh chapter of Hebrews, the scripture talked about faith. The fact that it is impossible to please God without faith. It didn't end there as men, and women who through faith did many things were recognised. 

This is it, wherefore seeing we also are compassed with so great a cloud of witnesses ( meaning that, since we have seen people who through faith lived to the glory of God, pleasing him), Let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us (Looking at this people, let's put every thing aside by faith, believing that if they could, we can too), and let us run with patience the race which has been set before us(now we know it is possible to live our lives for him, and seeing that we have these examples, there's no need to panic, following their patterns, let's run our race with patience). Praise God.

You see, it's very much possible to live our lives for the Lord. The Lord through his word has given us certain examples to help us see for ourselves that if they could do it, we can too. May their lives, stories, and victories continue to inspire us, and exhort us to live daily for the Lord. Amen.

Thought for the day: You have been given a cloud of witnesses. These cloud of witnesses are examples for you to follow, and following them, you should live your life by faith to the glory of God.
