Service Type:

Run The Race Of Life With Faith And Hope

Hebrews 12:1-3 (NASB)
1  Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,
2  fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
3  For consider Him who has endured such hostility by sinners against Himself, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.

1.     The Witnesses Motivate Us To Keep Running

Hebrews 11:4 (NASB)
4  By faith Abel offered to God a better sacrifice than Cain, through which he obtained the testimony that he was righteous, God testifying about his gifts, and through faith, though he is dead, he still speaks.

Hebrews 11:39-40 (NASB)
39  And all these, having gained approval through their faith, did not receive what was promised,
40  because God had provided something better for us, so that apart from us they would not be made perfect.

2.     Endure While Removing Every Sin & Encumbrance  

3.     Follow & Focus On Jesus To End Your Race In Joy
