Voices from the Great Cloud of Witnesses

There are many discouraging voices in modern Christianity. This 1-minute devotion gives us some encouraging voices to spur us on to love and good deeds. #BibleLoveNotes #Bible #Devotions

It's discouraging to hear the voices of former Christians who reject their faith. But we mustn't let their voices affect our faith or joy.

Instead, let's listen to the "great cloud of witnesses" who cheer us on (Hebrews 12:1). They trusted, sacrificed, and persevered, holding tightly to the Word of God. 

Their voices give us the courage to do the same.

They didn't need every hard question answered because they trusted God's goodness. They didn't need culture's approval because they loved God more than man.

They stood when others were stepping down. They persevered when others were giving up. They suffered when others were taking the easy way out. 

God says the world was not worthy of them (Hebrews 11:38). 

Why not find some good Christian biographies this week and start listening to these good voices. 

Perhaps some of these 1-minute devotions will give you a place to start:

Lillian, who refused to quit.
Mary, who persevered against great odds.
Rachel, who gave up worldly wealth.
Frances, who rode the circuit.
Biddy, who recorded words that continue to inspire.
Jonathan, who brought the gospel to China.
Robert, who forgave great injustice.
Louis, a 12-year-old boy who gave "sight" to the blind.
George, a former slave who served mankind.
Joni, who's spent over 50 years in a wheelchair praising God.
Steve, who was baptized by the man who murdered his father.
Ginny, who considers hardship a privilege.
40 men, who would rather freeze than deny Christ.
