Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
Once again, we are urged to focus on Jesus. As Christians, sooner or later we will meet with opposition and distractions that can blunt our enthusiasm or commitment to godly living, and so, drift, finding other more absorbing interests to draw us away. We can be put off too by disbelief or opposition from those with whom we mix socially or at work. Commitment to regular prayer and worship, where we are brought back to “consider Him,” renews our commitment to Christ, refreshes us and secures our faith.
Lord if I forget you today due to my busy life or neglect you, do not forget me and my prayer is for grace that I might be helped to turn back to you.
