Run Your Race
July 1, 2018 Series: Live One Love
Scripture: Hebrews 12:1–12:29
Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us. - Hebrews 12:1
Intro: Each of us have different “gifts, callings, and effects.” Just as each hero of the faith in Hebrews 11 lived a very different story, our individual obedience will look radically different as we live Jesus’ One Love with our lives. May we each be encouraged to take a step of faith today to follow the Most High on the “R-A-C-E” he has set before us:
R –Run Your Race
“We all have different gifts, callings, and effects.”- Pastor Paul Kaneshiro
A –Awe For God
C –Confess Your Sin
WYMUDGUFU (1 John 1:9) – When you mess up, don’t give up, fess up.
E –Endure With My Eyes on Jesus
“Looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith”- Hebrews 12:1-2
“Most people die in their 20’s and are buried in their 70’s.”
/\ Know The Love
\/ Be The Love
This is how God showed His Love among us:
He sent His One and only Son into the world
in order that we might live through Him.
- 1 John 4:9
Have a 1L Conversation this week.
The goal of a One Love Conversation is not to convert anyone (That’s God’s job). Success is getting honest answers from a person and possibly having a meaningful discussion. Often these conversations lead to answering questions we are asked and having opportunities to pray.
“Love one” person by sincerely asking:
1) What is one love to you? 2) Who Is Jesus to you?
Listen closely to what he or she says, and please take time to anonymously share answers you discovered using the form at the top of oneloveskate.org this week.
