"And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
"I have been crucified with Christ." I have already taken my death & am living the Eternal Life KNOWING Father GOD & Jesus! There will be no separation from this place---my FAITH is in The BLOOD of Jesus Christ, alone!
This made me wonder if I've been tested deeply? Probably not yet, so far my faith hasn't cost me much in my life. But I hope I can be rooted so much in Christ that when trials do come I can find peace and joy in them.
