Endurance on the Journey

Hebrews 12:1-3

What are you training for?
We must run the race of faith with endurance so that we will finish.

There are four steps:

  1. Consider the crowd who is witnessing to us

    Hebrews 12:1a
    Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses

  2. Get rid of every hindrance

    Hebrews 12:1b
    Let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles

  3. Go the distance

    Hebrews 12:1c
    And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us

  4. Keep the focus on the finish line

    Hebrews 12:2-3
    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.

Live It Out

Let’s be honest with the Lord!

  1. How are you running the race today?
    • Doing well?
    • Tired, but ok?
    • Dangerously tired?
  2. Will you look to Jesus?
    • Will you ask Jesus for help?
    • Will you confess your hindrances?
