Fresh Hope – 31st March 2016

Hebrews 12 vs 1-3 says
“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders us and the sin that so easily entangles us, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you would not grow weary and lose heart.”

4 things to help you from these verses today…

1. Surround yourself with great people, who are further down the road than you, who will encourage you and inspire you. Make an effort to be with these people. They may not just ‘fall into your lap’ – go after them.

2. Get rid of what is stopping you moving forward and get on with it. Run.

3. Keep looking to Jesus. Because He knew the outcome, He went through the hardship of dying. So don’t give up, He went through much more for me and you because He looked forward to the promise.

4. Don’t grow weary and lose heart. People opposed Jesus and then killed him. Don’t give up, God is for you.
