A Study on Discernment

The Process of Transformation

Do you use to-do lists? There are many people who find a great sense of satisfaction from writing things down on a piece of paper and then marking them off one by one. Without the list, many of us come to end of the day and focus on what didn’t get done rather than what was accomplished.

Read Hebrews 12:1-17

Points to Ponder

  • How are we able to “run the race” with endurance?
  • How can we avoid growing weary in our efforts?
  • What three things are we told to pursue? (verses 14-15)
  • What are some situations that can cause you miss your spiritual goals?

Something to Think About

We often begin the day with a mental list of how we want to do better. But, when we come to the end of our day we look back and all we see are our mistakes and failures. So as not to get discouraged we must remind ourselves that Jesus is the author and finisher of our faith. He began the good work in us and He will be faithful to complete it.
