Join us for our sermon series, Olympic Faith!
SUNDAY WORSHIP: SUNDAY, August 21, 2016 ~ 11 AM:
PREPARE FOR WORSHIP:
Even though the Olympics are winding down, our series on Olympic Faith continues with the sermon entitled, “Endurance.” Every person who seeks to achieve something exceptional, must find the power of endurance. The people in the book of Hebrews are struggling to endure the circumstances of their lives. But, this writer reminds them that there is far greater value in enduring the current circumstances, rather than giving up. All of us are tempted to give up amid the difficult moments of our lives. This week as we turn to Hebrews 11:22-29, we encounter the story of the Exodus and Moses leading the people of God out of slavery. We find that God had a far greater goal than simply bringing Israel out of Egypt, God wanted set humanity free of the slavery of sin. Where do you want to give up? Where do you need to endure for a greater story? As you read Hebrews 11:22-29, allow these words to give you confidence that God’s enduring power will help you! Hebrews 11:22-29: By faith Joseph, when his end was near, spoke about the exodus of the Israelites from Egypt and gave instructions concerning the burial of his bones. By faith Moses' parents hid him for three months after he was born, because they saw he was no ordinary child, and they were not afraid of the king's edict. By faith Moses, when he had grown up, refused to be known as the son of Pharaoh's daughter. He chose to be mistreated along with the people of God rather than to enjoy the fleeting pleasures of sin. He regarded disgrace for the sake of Christ as of greater value than the treasures of Egypt, because he was looking ahead to his reward. By faith he left Egypt, not fearing the king's anger; he persevered because he saw him who is invisible. By faith he kept the Passover and the application of blood, so that the destroyer of the firstborn would not touch the firstborn of Israel. By faith the people passed through the Red Sea as on dry land; but when the Egyptians tried to do so, they were drowned. (NIV)
