An Endurance Race of Faith

Pastor Jay continues the series on Hebrews with this week’s sermon “An Endurance Race of Faith” from Hebrews 12:1-3.

Hebrews 12:1-3 (ESV)

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, 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.

Run the race of faith with endurance.

  • Consider the cloud of witnesses.
  • Ride yourself of all hindrances.
    • Ride yourself of weights.
    • Rid yourself of sin.
  • Look to Jesus.
