Looking unto Jesus



As both our example of faith and the object of our faith, Jesus stands as the climax of Hebrews 11 and its list of heroes. Thus let us run the course set before us with endurance. There are hindrances to be set aside. There will be hostility from opposition. But looking unto Jesus, we see Him on the other side of those sacrifices and seated at the right hand of God. Let’s Go!

The Father guides in the desert



Why does God allow the hard times in our lives?  Does He have a purpose for those dry, challenging circumstances we face?  Moses reminds the children of Israel and us that like a good Father, God brings us through the desert wilderness to test us and prepare us for greater victories ahead, if we will learn the lessons of the wilderness.

Saved to Uttermost



So Great a Salvation we have in Jesus Christ.  He saves those who follow Him to the uttermost with His once for all sacrifice of Himself and always making intercession for us (that we need), until the salvation is perfected in Him.

Steadfast in the Faithful God



Growing in wisdom.  James challenged his readers and us to call out to God for wisdom right after telling them to rejoice in tribulation for the endurance it produces in the believer’s life.  No coincidence.  James had seen in the life of Jesus that the fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom.  And wisdom is to trust God even when the challenges of our life don’t make sense.  And Christ sustains us when we seek to trust Him above trusting our reasoning.

When we feel like giving up.



Elijah was a man who had the same weaknesses as we all do, yet he was also a man of faith used by God in miraculous ways.  But we pause today to examine his humanity so that we might find hope and encouragement from the grace shown him in his time of weakness.
