Hebrews 12:2 ESV
This is the final encouragement. Jesus went ahead of you, he dealt with everything that had to deal with, and oh yeah took on the sins you and I have committed. He did it. He won. He is available to help us.
Sometimes this is referred to as the audience of one. It doesn’t matter how many fans there are in the stands. You give everything that you have because Jesus is your audience.
