Championship Faith – Hebrews 12:1-3
1 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, 2 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. 3 Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
Four characteristics to get to the finish line (Goal is to be like Jesus with a reward being with Jesus in Heaven in His courts)
- Let us throw off everything that Hinders us from moving forward (in the path the Lord shows)
- Let us throw off sin that easily entangles
The sin: Unbelief: Lack of Faith and Trust in God.
- Let us run with perseverance
Keep moving forward in the path laid for you for the Lord is before you. The Lord says: I have the plans I have for you. He started this work and He is going to complete this work He started in you.
Perseverance: Love that keeps on obeying his voice
- Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of Faith.
