Any March Madness fans out there? Gonzaga barely won yesterday, but they persevered!
Todays’ post is the continuation of my learning from the IF conference last month. We took a detour from Timothy into Hebrews 12.
Perseverance (Christine Caine) – Hebrews 12
-marathon, not a sprint
-not about what’s happening around us, but who is on the throne
-witnesses (let us also, skin in the game), not commentators or spectators
-the pressure of our generation – what gospel will we pass down?
-your turn to carry the baton, what will we do?
-Israelites complained and only their children made it to the promised land…
-we can call sin what it is b/c there is a cure! The blood of Jesus sets all free.
-fix our eyes & throw off whatever is dragging you down
