Message Outline: “How to Walk with The Lord” December 21st 2014

“How to Walk with The Lord”
Heb 12:1-2, 12:28, 13:12-15
December 21st 201
To walk with the Lord, Let Us....

I.  Throw off distractions and the sin which easily entangles us. (12:1a)
12:1a  Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely,

II.  Run the our individual races which were marked out for us (12:1b)
 12:1b  and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,

III.   Fix our eyes on Jesus through all of life (12:2)
12:2   looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.

IV.  Be thankful and worship our awesome God with our full being (12:28-9)
28 Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe, 29 for our God is a consuming fire.

V.  Identify with Christ’s purpose and focus on our eternal home (13:12-14)
 12 So Jesus also suffered outside the gate in order to sanctify the people through his own blood.
13 Therefore let us go to him outside the camp and bear the reproach he endured.
 For here we have no lasting city, but we seek the city that is to come.

VI. Continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise (13:15)
15 Through him then let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that acknowledge his name.
