The Year Ahead

Sermon text: Hebrews 12:1-3 Every one of us has been given a mission by God. In order to be all that God intends for us to be, we must rid ourselves of any distractions and sins which hold us back. We have the example of those who’ve gone before us to encourage us. But our greatest example is without a doubt Jesus Himself. We need to keep our eyes solidly on Him so that we don’t become discouraged.

Jesus’ Words (John 14:1-6)

We experience good times and bad in life. It’s easy to get caught up in the day to day. But followers of Christ need to remember that this is not our home. Our mission while here and the promise of life in the hereafter should change our daily focus.

The Approaching Deadline (1 Corinthians 7:39-41)

The apostle Paul makes it clear that Jesus can return anytime. This imminence should keep us focused on the work at hand. We cannot allow work or family or pursuits keep us from our mission. Often situations can derail us. Good times make us complacent, while bad periods distract us. Whatever the case, we need to keep our eyes on Jesus and His commands.
