What Happened Next?
A Study in the Book of Hebrews
Week 7: The Conclusion: Running the Race
What we have learned:
1. Focus on Jesus– Do not lose sight of the one who died for you. Fulfilled all the promises of God.
2. Believe in the work of God– Jesus was the perfect priest and sacrifice. Sins forgiven, once for all.
3. Rest in the work of Christ– cease from your self-effort in trying to earn God’s forgiveness. Come to me all who are weary and burdened and I will give you REST.
4. Understand and Accept the New Covenant– God’s promise fulfilled in Grace. New and living way opened for us through the work of Christ.
5. Persevere through your times of testing and suffering for doing what is right and good – you will receive a rich reward if you don’t give up.
6. Put feet to your faith– grab ahold of the promises of God until your breath your last.
7. Maintain a straight course – train to finish well.
To see and DO what is next for followers of Christ, we must TRAIN.
HOW YOU MUST TRAIN TO OBTAIN VICTORY
1. Endure Hardship
2. Throw off the entangling sin(s).
3. Build the Key Muscles- Faith and a Good Conscience
a. 12:28,13:15 - let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, offer a sacrifice of praise, the fruit of our lips giving thanks. WINNOWING WORSHIP! His presence!
b. 13:1 - Keep on loving one another as brothers and sisters – no bitterness or unchecked offense.
c. 13:4 – Marriage should be honored and kept pure, avoid sexual immorality, love of money.
d. 13:17 – Imitate your leaders, submit to their authority, pray for them. “Have confidence in your leaders and submit to their authority, because they keep watch over you as those who must give an account. Do this so that their work will be a joy, not a burden, for that would be of no benefit to you.”
e. 13:18 – The Goal for every Christian in order to be the world-changer we are called to be!
We are sure that we have a clear conscience and desire to live honorably in every way.
