All Saints Day
We live in a day where the lives of the rich and famous are followed in most every newspaper and tabloid. Today, being All Saints Day, let’s focus on something of greater value; remembering the saints that have gone before us and encouraging those living among us.
A Saint is defined as someone who professes faith in Jesus Christ and strives to live as Christ did. I am thankful for the examples of the Saints that have gone before me and I encourage the Saints living today to remember the words of Hebrews 12:1-2;
“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.”
