I hope you guys are awake and moving this morning. Only one more day in the school week after today. You guys can do it for sure. We are praying for you as the school year finishes up.
We loved having you guys at The Gathering last night, and if you missed it, then know that we truly missed you. Hopefully you will make it out for our GO! series, which begins next Wednesday night.
Our man, Justin Kenley, finished up our WE ARE... series last night by talking about "The Struggle is Real," and he focused on Philippians 4:10-13. At some point in every single one of our lives the struggle is going to become very real, and we are going to have to ask ourselves where our hope lies.
Scripture: Take some time this morning, or for some of you guys maybe this evening, and read through Hebrews 11 today.
Observation: Take and make sure we notice that massive word used throughout the entire chapter. The word is FAITH. Make sure we notice v.1. It gives us a definition of faith. Make sure we notice how the chapter progresses. We see that it talks about the faith of so many people. Make sure we notice how much is spoken about Abraham. Make sure we notice v. 32 where the author of Hebrews tells us that he could go on and on and on, but the time is not on his side to progress that deeply.
Application: Make this personal. Do not just flit with surface level depth, but rather dig deep. Ask yourself the hard questions. Where is our faith? What are we sure of what we hope for? What are we certain of things we do not see?
Pray: Pick one person to pray for today. Maybe it is a friend. Maybe it is a family member. Pray for them throughout the entire day.
