Gone Before

Gone Before

Scripture tells us about the lives of men and women who have gone before us. Names like Abraham, Sarah, Moses, Ruth, David, Mary, Joseph, and Paul represent countless men and women whose lives were characterized by trust in God. They live on as role models for us today. Like the church throughout the ages, they found God’s call to be worth giving their lives for. Whose example inspires you to live for God’s glory and the good of others?

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. —Hebrews 12:1 NLT

Prayer: Jesus, may the example of those who have gone before us continue to inspire us to center our lives on You and to count it a privilege to live for God’s glory. In Your name we pray, amen.
