In this life, struggle is inevitable. But we must endure. We must not lose heart. Strengthen yourselves, for our God is a consuming fire. In this series we study the powerful words of Hebrews 12.
Scripture: Hebrews 12:1-28
Israel learns of God's love and power through history: the provision of God through famine, the power and protection of God as they fled Egypt and the presence of God as they worship Him first at Mt. Sinai and later at Mt. Zion.
Scripture: Exodus 9:10-18, Hebrews 12:23-24
Hebrews 12 is a key passage in perseverance in the faith. Heaven is cheering us on. Jesus is the pioneer who inspires us to run the race without giving up. Jesus endured the cross-no greater obstacle or suffering could come to the sinless Son of God. Let us be inspired and encouraged! Preached at Elevation Church. Used by permission.

Topic: Discipleship, Perseverance
Build a home, not a house. Godly living is caught more than taught. Every child needs consequences, not empty threats. Rules without relationship lead to rebellion. We have to encourage rather than discourage. You can't pick your child, but you can pick their friends. Godly parents don't automatically make godly children. Preached at North Coast Church.

God directed you to this sermon, I believe, so that you would know, first, that you don't have to die, and, second, so that you would know that Jesus, who makes this promise to you, is God, the God of Israel, the God of all. And, third, you are here because God wants you to see the implication for your life of knowing you will not die. By John Piper. ©2013 Desiring God...

Russell Moore shares his insights about tension during the holiday season. Here are his wise suggestions: "We tend to idealize holidays, but human depravity doesn’t go into hibernation between Thanksgiving and New Year’s.

Hebrews 12 is a marvelous guideline to lovingly discipline and mentor your children. Always discipline your kids with the big purpose in mind. Don't fall into traps of poor discipline by over-controlling, shaming, comparisons, overly harsh discipline, anger or fault-finding.

Scripture: Hebrews 12:5-11
What comprises your identity? A sense of relationship with God, an awareness of God's call on your life and a deeper understanding of who He created you to be. Compare Mt. Sinai, the unapproachable mountain, the dispensation of the Law to Mt. Zion, the permanent dwelling of God where all are invited to be with Him.

Hebrews 12 teaches that systems will be shaken, but in God's power we will remain stable. Relationships will be shaken, but in God's presence, we will remain secure. Hope will be shaken but in God's promises, we will remain confident. Preached at Elevation Church, Part Four of the Hebrews XII series. Used by permission. Watch in HD HERE .
