CONSIDER HIM THAT ENDURED

Sometimes our trials in this life can be overwhelming, but God’s Word always brings us comfort…

Hebrews 12:3 For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.

Albert Barnes Commentary:

For consider him – Attentively reflect on his example that you may be able to bear your trials in a proper manner.

That endured such contradiction of sinners – Such opposition.  The idea is, that we are to pursue the path of duty and follow the dictates of conscience, let the world say what they will about it. In doing this we cannot find a better example than the Saviour. No opposition of sinners ever turned him from the way which he regarded as right; no ridicule ever caused him to abandon any of his plans; no argument, or expression of scorn, ever caused him for a moment to deviate from his course.

Lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds – The meaning is, that there is great danger of being disheartened and wearied out by the opposition which you meet with. But with the bright example of one who was never disheartened, and who never became weary in doing the will of God, you may persevere. The best means of leading a faithful Christian life amidst the opposition which we may encounter, is to keep the eye steadily fixed on the Saviour.

Jesus Paid It All

Jesus Christ, The Only Way To Heaven

LEAVE IT THERE

Leave It There

(1) If the world from you withhold of its silver and gold,
And you have to get along with meager fare,
Just remember, in his Word, how he feeds the little bird –
Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there.

Refrain:
Leave it there, leave it there, 
Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there;
If you trust and never doubt, he will surely bring you out.
Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there.

(2) If your body suffers pain and your health you can’t regain,
And your soul is almost sinking in despair,
Jesus knows the pain you feel, he can save and he can heal – 
Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there. [Refrain]

(3) When your enemies assail and your heart begins to fail,
Don’t forget that God in heaven answers prayer;
He will make a way for you and will lead you safely through –
Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there. [Refrain]

(4) When your youthful days are gone and old age is stealing on.
And your body bends beneath the weight of care,
He will never leave you then, he’ll go with you to the end –
Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there. [Refrain]
