Pursuing Excellence message 4
Text: Hebrews 12:1-4
Paul tells us that we need to set our hearts and minds on things above; that is,on things that hold eternal value. Jesus invites us to come to Him to find rest; we find rest by trusting Christ alone for salvation and learning from Him through personal relationship. Hebrews 12:1-4 paints a picture of running the race before us with perseverance, fixing our eyes on Jesus. This is true discipleship at its core: intentionally following what God has for us by focusing on Christ and learning from Him each and every day.
