Think about the activities you enjoy. Do you do them just for fun? Do you do them out of habit? Or do you try to get better at them?
When it comes to our walk with Christ, we need to have PURPOSE.
Throughout this year at Streamside we will talk about how to live our lives on PURPOSE for Christ even if there are:
–Obstacles in our path
–Mountains to climb
–Difficult paths to run
–Dark valleys to go through
Together with Jesus the Christ we can run this race!
Our keys points for 2021 are:
Purpose: Hebrews 12:1-2
“Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
Plan: 2 Timothy 2:5
“For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,”
Path: Psalm 119:105
“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.”
Promise: Isaiah 40:31
“Yet those who wait for the LORD will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary.”
Perseverance: 2 Timothy 4:7-8
“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, i have kept the faith; in the future there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day; and not only to me on, but to all who have loved His appearing.”
Now we need a PURPOSE, a PLAN, a PATH, and a PROMISE to run on. We find all of these in God’s Word, the Bible. We also want to run our race with PERSEVERANCE.
Come along with us so we can all run together with Christ. We can’t wait to see you!
Blessings to all,
The Streamside Family
