Getting Ready for Sunday August 21 at The Crossing

 

Running Race of Life graphic

This week we start a new sermon series, “Running the Race of Your Life.” The Bible compares the Christian life to a race. We’re all running, whether we realize it or not, so we want to figure out how to run it well. Why should we run? What does winning look like? How do we train and race in the right way? That’s what we’ll unpack over the coming weeks. We’re looking forward to what should be a motivating and highly practical sermon series (and small group material too).

Dave Cover will kick things off this Sunday with the sermon, “The Race of Your Life” from Hebrews 12:1–2. The Scripture reads,

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
