Running the race of life for god.

Hebrews 11:39 – 12:3

what motivates us to enter the race for god
What motivates us to enter the “race” for God?
  • Hebrews 11:39.
    • To please God (the favor of God):
        • Galatians 1:10, Phil 3:10-12; Matt 25:21
    • Christ endured for me. 12:3
    • Others have entered. We race with them.
        • “Coaches,” encouragers.
        • Loved ones, friends, in Christ.
witnesses vs bystanders
Witnesses vs bystanders?
  • Bystander – uninterested, watches only;
  • Witness:
    • Run themselves;
    • Run to win for Christ; 1 Cor 9:24
    • Different gifts joined.
  • Team sport. Unity vs the right way.
how am i to run the race
How am I to run the race?
  • God has already set “my course”;
      • 12:1; the Word is “how to” manual.
      • God’s course or our own?
        • Luke 9:23-25, 14:26; Matt 11:28-29
      • Serving, leading, honoring, feeding.
how am i to run the race1
How am I to run the race?
  • Lay aside encumbrances (everything that hinders) and entanglements (prevents or retards running):
        • The resolving of losses, disappoints.
        • Repenting of sins.
        • Excess weight – juggler at marathon
        • Attainments, successes. Phil 3:12-14

Consider 2013:

    • What would you bring with you into 2014?
    • What would you put behind you?
    • Health, finances, spiritual, work, marriage, family, school?
    • Examine your life: 1 Cor 11:28, Gal 6:4
how am i to run the race2
How am I to run the race?
  • Fixing (“aphorao”) your eyes on Jesus:
      • Strictly looking away from all things but one; exclusive viewing; giving attention to one thing.
      • For me: feeding; loving; and leading.
how am i to run the race3
How am I to run the race?
  • Run with endurance (“hupo-meno”) – steadfast, “tarry behind” in something:
      • Implies stress, opposition, temptation to give up and give in;
      • If no adversity then are we in the race at all?
      • One step at a time; one goal at a time.
