Are you running the race of faith? What’s slowing you down? Who’s encouraging you to keep going? Who are you encouraging to keep going? Are you keeping your eyes on Jesus or is something else distracting you? Is something robbing you of joy? Are you resisting sin? Can you hear Jesus calling you to finish the race? Can you feel Jesus empowering you to finish?
Will you look to Jesus to help you finish this race?
Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.
Some of you might remember that Josée put together an original version of “Carol of the Bells” that a number of us played for the Christmas Eve service. We heard a lot of good things about that and wanted to make it available so we hit the studio (OK, we came into church) and recorded that for you.
At long last we have it here… I hope that you enjoy.
By the way, This version is:Josée – Violin, Arrangement Jenny – Cello Eric – Drums Scott – Guitar
Never to late (or early) for Christmas!!!
