As the reader opens the book of Hebrews Paul highlights many of the giants of the faith and shares about the great exploits they accomplished when God showed up in their lives. As you dive into chapter 12 Paul turns the tables on his listeners and challenges us with the concept that there is a great cloud of witnesses watching us and cheering us on in our own generation. That in fact every Christian has a God ordained race to run. God wants to shift us from our couches into the race that he has called us to run. In learning about this shift how will you respond? Will you throw off the weights of sin that hold you back as described in todays verses? Will you dive in and serve God wholeheartedly? Sitting on the sidelines simply is not an option.
Running with the Giants

As you look in the bible there is a lot of talk about birth. Bible talks about the baby Jesus being born in a manger, it talks about the Christian being born again, and the day of Pentecost represents the birth of the Church. The day in which the Holy Spirit was poured out on the body of believers and empowered them to be witnesses in the early church. His presence was accompanied by signs and wonders and in Peters 1st message he describes a day in the future where the Spirit would once again be poured out before the return of the Lord. We live in that day and age and need the power of the Holy Spirit more than ever before. Listen and apply the words of this message and watch what God does in and through your life.
