210 – It’s All About Jesus
Sept 21, 1986
Dan keeps getting from Chapel and other services at school (like Weekend of Prayer), how MUCH Jesus loves us and WANTS to have fellowship with us. I want to know that, too, Lord.
This ministered to me this morning! [yes, it’s out of order]
Hebrews 12 in the Bible’s words and my words:
v 3 Think about Jesus, and the hostility from sinners against Himself so that I do not grow weary in my walk and give up!
v 2 Fix my eyes on Jesus. Remembering that He is the beginning of my faith and the One who will perfect it!
He endured because there was great joy awaiting Him in heaven.
He despised the shame but He is now in glory and receiving glory for His steadfast work of obedience.
v 1 Jesus is my example and there are many witnesses watching, rooting.
Lay aside encumbrances
Forsake sin that trips me up
R-u-n the race with Him
v 4 remember how much Jesus went through
v 5-6 Remember God disciplines those He loves
v 7 Remember discipline is good for me, just as correction is good for my children
v 11 Discipline is sorrowful at the time, but righteousness comes from it
HOW DOES THIS WORK: keep finding strength in the Lord, keep on straight paths, pursue peace, keep bitterness at bay, don’t get yourself rejected, Georgann!
