By FAITH we SET the COMPASS of our lives on Jesus Christ who is Lord OVER ALL. How do you do this? The first thing we need to do is THROW OFF the "weight of sin". But remember, Christ HAS DONE the WORK for us. Therefore Hebrews 12:1 is not so much a COMMAND as it is an INVITATION to RECEIVE the GRACE of God and LIVE a life of RIGHTEOUSNESS that comes from being IN UNION with Christ. It is an INVITATION to CENTER YOUR LIFE in Jesus Christ.
