There's More For You
There's More For You; November 12&13, 2022
Are You Chasing Jesus?
Read Hebrews 12:1-2 together. What sticks out to you? What does this tell you about who Jesus or what God values?
What are some ways that you would identify yourself or some categories you fit in? Can you name some ways that you have changed over the last several years? How would you answer the question "Are you chasing Jesus?" and what are the things that come up in your mind as barriers to that?
The author of Hebrews talks about "a great cloud of witness" that has run the race well and how that motivates other to keep running. Who do you have in your life that might be discouraging in your journey with God? Who do you have in your life that you think is moving towards Jesus?
When Jesus says "follow me", we can see that the gospel comes to us and invites us to move with Jesus on his mission in the world. What might it look like for you to chase after Jesus in this season of your life?
We heard about getting rid of "everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles." What is something in your life that is causing you to run slower, to get stuck, or to weight you down that you could lay down? What is one thing that you could change or add that would help you?
Jesus, you are the pioneer and the fore-runner of our faith. Help us to keep our eyes fixed on you and to be willing to lay down our rights, or preferences, and our whole life for the joy of being with you because that is what you did for us. Amen.
