Building on the Past, Looking to the Future - Continuing the Conversation - Part 1
Hebrews 12:1-3, Ephesians 4:1-3
Remembering the context:
Throw off everything - everything?
hindrances - what hinders your relationship with God
sin that entangles
Run with perseverance
Perseverance doesn’t just happen - there’s work involved - determination - grit - Christian faith has active participation in it
Fixing our eyes on Jesus
The Qumran bunch lost sight
He’s at the right hand of God
Do not grow weary and lose heart - ways to overcome weariness:
Next week: “Continuing the Conversation - Part 2” Ephesians
Closing Prayer - take these notes and this prayer home with you and pray it throughout the week. Blessings and Peace in Christ Jesus.
If I’m entangled in any nature or notion or act of sin - make me aware of it - forgive me for it - deliver me from it.
Teach me Holy Spirit how to be a faithful disciple - trustworthy - honest - sincere - grace giving
Give me clear vision of my Lord and Savior and help me to remember and cherish His words
Strengthen me for the race of life that I am in
Thank you ………., In Jesus name.
