Enjoy Life, Enjoy God

I learned in my motorcycle safety training that the bike goes where my eyes are looking.

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles.  And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith.
                                                     --Hebrews 12:1,2 TNIV
Hebrews 11 celebrates our great tradition of faithful people gone before us, the "cloud of witnesses."  Now the challenge: To keep our eyes on Jesus.

To do so, is to escape the entanglements that divert us from faithfulness.  Remember, where the eyes are focused, that's where we go.
