Champions  __KEEP___ their eye’s on the prize – keep the main thing the main thing

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the Champion,who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne.”   Hebrews 12:1-2 NLT

3 things that can distract us

We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation.   Romans 5:3-4 NLT

3 things that can carry us to the finish line

  • What you ____BELIEVE_______
  • Where you’re ____GOING______
  • Why you ____RUN_______

 “There are three things that remain: faith, hope, and love—yet love surpasses them all. So above all else, let love be the beautiful prize for which you run.”       1 Corinthians 13:13

Faith, Hope, & Love

“Abraham believed in the God who brings the dead back to life and who creates new things out of nothing.“   Romans 4:17

FAITH

“The confidence of my callingenables me to overcome every difficulty without shame, for I have an intimate revelation of this God. And my faith in him convinces me that he is more than able to keep all that I’ve placed in his hands safeand secure until the fullness of his appearing.”      2 Timothy 1:12 TPT 

 HOPE

“I press on to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus first possessed me. 13 No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, 14 I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.”    Philippians 3:12-14

 LOVE

 “Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of loveand good works.”   Hebrews 10:24 NLT

“If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn’t love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn’t love others, I would be nothing. If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing.”   1 Corinthians 13:1-3 NLT
