#4651 – Run with Perseverance

Good morning people who keep your eyes fixed on Jesus

Today as we finish our BIY series on faith, I want to encourage us with the first three verses of Hebrews 12.

Hebrews 12:1-3 NIV 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. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.

God is looking for people who live in faith and leave in faith.

God is looking for people who do not give up on their journey towards eternity.

God is looking for people who will ruthlessly and diligently throw off what is unhelpful to living a pleasing life of faith.

God is looking for people who will continually fix their eyes on Jesus.

I believe you are such a person!
