Heb. 12:3


3 For [gar] consider [analogizomai] him that endured [hupomeno] such [toioutos] contradiction [antilogia] of [hupo] sinners [hamartolos] against [eis] himself [autos], lest [hina me] ye be wearied [kamno] and faint [ekluo] in your [humon] minds [psuche]. KJV-Interlinear



3 For consider Him who has endured such hostility by sinners against Himself, so that you may not grow weary and lose heart. NASB

Jesus Christ underwent greater stress and pain than any other person in history. Yet He looked forward to greater things, greater than any suffering inflicted on Himself. He looked forward to the saving of hundreds of millions, even billions of people throughout history, and their eternal future in heaven and perfect happiness.

Christ was ridiculed, cursed, made fun of, spit on, gossiped against, mistreated, falsely accused, lied about, tortured, beaten, and hung up on the Cross for all to see. And for all of that, He never broke one law, never harmed a single person, but instead healed and cured many tens of thousands of people from all sorts of illnesses, and physical handicaps, even from death.

For that, the politics of the day saw Him as a threat to a way of life. A way that was not going anywhere for anyone, except in its provision of a higher standard of life for an elite few at the expense of the masses of people.

The leadership of Judea preached good and right to the masses, but never really wanted the masses to gain any kind of improvement in their lives. To subscribe to Jesus would mean that they were no longer needed. That of course did not become a reality until 70 A.D. And it came the hard way when the Romans finally came in and obliterated nearly all of the region of Judea.

Not only did that invasion destroy the last remnants of the Levitical Priesthood, but it also destroyed all of the physical evidence of Jesus presence in the region. No cups that He drank from. No place where He was born. No place where He might have slept. The emphasis on Jesus life is and should be on His Word and His work, not on the things He wore or places that He visited.

So we do not look at the geography of His life, but the purpose and intent of His accomplishments. We look to Bible doctrine and to the people who have lived before us, who themselves looked to the scriptures, for our inspiration.

Life moves along slowly it seems. Only after time has passed by do we think that time is passing by too quickly. But as the minutes pass we will often wonder what is it all about. Where are we going? What have we accomplished in life? Are we on the right track?

The bills constantly nag at us. The family has constant demands on us. We want things in life and many of them are beyond our reach. Life is full of repetition up in the morning, to work, back home and repeat it all over again everyday of our life. People treat us badly, and so forth.

If you only look at life (without God) then you have a basis for concern for you are not going anywhere really. One day you will die and only then you will realize your foolishness and ultimate failure in life.

But if you establish a consistent daily Bible study in your life, your experiences of abuse, despair and worry and so forth (which will certainly come along from time to time) can be quickly swept aside as you re-focus on the one and only person that you can rely on in life Jesus Christ.

It will no longer be yourself or the things surrounding your life that are real to you, but Christ and the promise of a great future, as well as being taken care of now in this life. Christ never abandons us, even now, regardless of our circumstances, while we wait patiently and faithfully on Him.

Gal. 2:20

It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me, and delivered Himself up for me.
