The Call to Endurance

1 Therefore since we also have such a large cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us lay aside every weight and the sin that so easily ensnares us, and run with endurance the race that lies before us,
2 keeping our eyes on Jesus,a the source and perfecterb of our faith, who for the joy that lay before Himc endured a cross and despised the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of God's throne.d

Fatherly Discipline

3 For consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself, so that you won't grow weary and lose heart.
