Hebrews 12 | Let Us Run the Race
November 19, 2023
Christians need encouragement, and we can’t do that on our own. It’s a modern-day lie that you don’t need anyone or that you should do it all by yourself. Instead, Christian fellowship is essential to enduring the hardships of life. The Hebrews Paul is writing to were persecuted by the Romans, and his question was whether their shared testimony and community would be enough to keep them firm in their faith. As Americans, we do not qualify as persecuted in the biblical sense, but there’s a growing sentiment that we’re in the way of culture. Without a firm community to keep us strong, we can get caught in the flow of culture and drift away from our faith until it’s no longer in our lives at all.
