West End United Methodist Church

Looking To Jesus

Speakers:Carol Cavin-Dillon
Topics:Sunday service

This is the second in a three-weeks sermon series on passages from the Letter (sermon) to the Hebrews.  In today’s reading the “preacher” is aware that the people of that congregation are getting tired, and he reminds them of the faith of their ancestors in the faith who endured incredible odds and opposition and ran the race they were called to run.  In this passage he tells them to look to Jesus.  We look to Jesus for help and healing.  For us, looking to Jesus may come initially by reading the Gospels and all their examples of Jesus healing and helping those in need.  Jesus can also be provoking, making people uncomfortable with his challenges, and that image of running the race can help, listening only to the voice of Jesus.  (NOTE: The video begins with the Children’s Moment, but once it starts you can scroll back to the beginning of the service if you want.  The entire service is videoed.)
