Join us for our new sermon series, Olympic Faith!
SUNDAY WORSHIP: SUNDAY, July 24, 2016 ~ 9 AM & 11 AM:
PREPARE FOR WORSHIP:
This week, we begin the sermon series “Olympic Faith.” We are currently enjoying the Olympic trials, as team USA becomes a reality. However, the Olympics are a great opportunity to explore the greatest contest of our lives, putting our belief and trust, not simply in our national pride, but in an eternal and everlasting God. We will be using Hebrews 11 as our starting point, because it is a list of “faith” Champions. The phrase “By faith” is repeated over and over to remind us of those, who in their time, put their trust in God. This week, we start with Hebrews 10:35-11:4 to talk about “Envision the Win.” What is the “win” for your life? Hebrews 10:35-11:4 helps us envision a win that is for the ages. As you read these verses, how do they challenge you toward greater faith? Hebrews 10:35-11:4: So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised. For, "In just a little while, he who is coming will come and will not delay." And, "But my righteous one will live by faith. And I take no pleasure in the one who shrinks back." But we do not belong to those who shrink back and are destroyed, but to those who have faith and are saved. Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for. By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God's command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible. By faith Abel brought God a better offering than Cain did. By faith he was commended as righteous, when God spoke well of his offerings. And by faith Abel still speaks, even though he is dead. (NIV)
