Bible Challenge – Hebrews 12

November 30, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us.” v.1 (NLT)

The Christian life involves hard work.  It requires us to give up whatever endangers our relationship with God, to run with endurance, and to struggle against sin with the power of the Holy Spirit.  To live effectively, we must keep our eyes on Jesus.  We will stumble if we look away from Him to stare at ourselves or at circumstances surrounding us.  Bottom line, We should be running for Christ, not for ourselves!  The only way to do this is to make sure we keep our eyes on Jesus!

Today, what race will you choose to run? Will you run the race that God has for you, or will you take a detour?  The challenge is to keep our eyes on Jesus, and surrender every circumstance and decision to Him so we can run in a way that pleases God, and frees us from guilt, shame, addictions and every other kind of sin that want to slow us down! I’m in … are you?
