As CHRISTIANS there’s something very important for us to keep in mind in the Turbulent Times in which we are living in… (THIS…) When you look to the Scriptures… you’ll find that Jesus Taught us some very practical things that are extremely important for us to PUT INTO PRACTICE for TIMES LIKE THESE! FEAR itself comes and goes… but LIVING FEARFUL IS OPTIONAL! Do whatever it takes to join us the remaining couple weeks as we talk more about living FEARLESS!
Sunday Snapshot… (Wk2) FIX YOUR EYES…
Hebrews 11:1-2... FAITH is the SUBSTANCE of things HOPED FOR and the EVIDENCE of things UNSEEN! THIS is what the ANCIENTS were COMMENDED for...
Hebrews 11:13… All these people were still LIVING BY FAITH when they DIED. They did not receive the things PROMISED; they only saw them and welcomed them from a DISTANCE… admitting that they were foreigners and strangers on earth.
Hebrews 11:36-38… Some faced jeers and flogging, and even chains and imprisonment. They were PUT TO DEATH by stoning; they were sawed in two; they were killed by the sword. They went about in sheepskins and goatskins, destitute, persecuted and mistreated… THE WORLD WAS NOT WORTHY OF THEM!
Hebrews 12:1-2... 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 BEFORE US... "FIXING OUR EYES" ON JESUS… the AUTHOR and PERFECTOR of FAITH. Who for the joy set before Him - He Endured The Cross… SCORNING (DESPISING) its SHAME and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
