Getting Ready for Sunday September 4 at The Crossing


This week we take a break from our sermon series for what is becoming a Labor Day tradition for The Crossing. Keith Simon will preach a biographical sermon, “Eric Liddell: An Olympic Gold Medalist’s Uncompromising Convictions,” from Hebrews 13:7, 12:1–2. The Scripture reads,

13:7 Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith.

12:1–2 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, 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.

The part of a book or a sermon that always gets my attention is a good story. I love to hear about real-life examples from peoples’ lives, what happened to them, what they learned, what it means. God has wired us to learn from real-life examples, from peoples’ stories. We’re told that we should pay attention to how other people live and learn from that. We’ll have a chance this week to do just that.
