Hebrews 12:1-3 - The race set before us (SM12-032)

For All Saints...

Dick Lucas' exposition of Hebrews 12:1-3


Hebrews 12
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 out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.

Phillippians 1

6 being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

Jude
24 To him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy

John 10

27 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. 28 I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. 29 My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand. 30 I and the Father are one.”
