We finish out the year with another passage in Hebrews. In Hebrews 12:2-3 the author notes that to run the race of life with perseverance, we should focus our attention on Jesus. Jesus is the ultimate example of someone who endured death itself to accomplish the rescue mission God set out for Him.
Bottom Line: Keep going because of what Jesus did for you. Knowing that Jesus persevered through death and was resurrected is the best encouragement for us to keep going when life gets hard. When we focus on Jesus, we remember that nothing is impossible and God will help us get through whatever we face in life.
There will be no Sunday School classes on May 26th for all grades as a result of the long Memorial Day weekend. Nursery care will still be provided for kids aged 3 and under.
What gets in the way of finishing what you start? Starting can be easy. We often start projects and new endeavors with excitement. Yet when whatever we’re working on gets difficult, we wonder if we should throw in the towel and give up. We want youth to start figuring out the things that get in the way of finishing, so when they face those times, they can trust God to help them overcome them.
This week, we head to Hebrews 12:1 where the author of Hebrews reminds us that when life gets hard, we can look to the heroes of the faith and see how they trusted God through some extremely difficult circumstances. God brought them through those trials, and God will help us through ours.
Bottom Line: God can help you let go of what is holding you back. It’s comforting to know that others have made it through to the other side of difficult times. When we see how God helped them, it helps us trust God more with our own circumstances.
