morning May 30th, 2010 in the 8:30 service.
Scripture: Hebrews 12:1-2
-- Story about jogging with grapes in mouth... athletic binges.
- We are to run the race with endurance; others will trip you
- When you fall, get up again; don't blame those who trip you
- Our only example should be Jesus
- There is no easy way, secret or shortcut: trust, serve and
- We see Jesus through lenses: Calvinism, Arminianism,
- Some get caught up in structure, timing, history of the Bible and
miss the life revealed in it.
- Our life comes from Jesus; Bible only makes Jesus real
- In a race it's only you. Make your load light; stare at Jesus
- Thank God for every situation; for the people who bring you pain
and for the good He does in your life because of them
- Release people from the pain they’ve caused you... forgiveness
(read letter he'd written to someone who'd wronged him)
- We all have family situations... people problems; lay them at the
feet of Jesus Endurance
