Summary: Nothing great has ever been accomplished without PERSISTENCE.

  Study Tools

HEBREWS 12:1-2 .... RUN WITH ENDURANCE

This morning I want to discuss... BEING PERSISTENT

Nothing great has ever been accomplished without... PERSISTENCE

Any person in the Bible who ever did anything GREAT FOR GOD.. Was persistent

Noah... Worked on Building the Ark... 100 Years

Even when no one believed... He was Persistent

Abraham... I’m going to give you a child in your old age...20 years pass... NOTHING

Stayed true to God... God asked him to give up the SON... PERSISTENT

David... Kept herding them Sheep...Practicing his Sling Shot

Killed a Philistine...

Every body wanted HIM TO BE KING... Except the KING

King tried to kill...HARP... David was persistent.... MIGHTY MAN OF GOD

God cares more about how we finish..

THAN HOW WE STARTED

NEW CHRISTIAN... ON FIRE

20 years later... BURNED OUT.... We have it backward

Get excited when we’re save... THEN GET BETTER

Persistence is 3 things:

1. Persistence is Bold—

Ephesians 3: 11 according to the eternal purpose which He accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord, 12 in whom we have boldness and access with confidence through faith in Him.

Don’t be ordinary... Be different... BE BOLD

Great thing about FREEDOM.... We are bold

YOU LOVE US OR HATE US.... Why???? .... WE’RE BOLD

Enjoy what God has for you... You’re not an accident... Fearfully, Wonderfully Made

You are so valuable....

HE DIDN”T DIE TO MAKE YOU VALUABLE

He died to show you how valuable you are...

BE BOLD...LIVE LIFE

Your price tag is amazing...

YOU ARE WORTH...The death of God’s son

That’s valuable...you’re singing...

“I’M NO GOOD” say it again

You think he want you to just limp by... PERSISTENCE IS BOLD

2. Persistence Doesn’t hesitate– Acts 12: 7 Now behold, an angel of the Lord stood by him, and a light shone in the prison; and he struck Peter on the side and raised him up, saying, “Arise quickly ” And his chains fell off his hands

Apparently being saved makes us indecisive

LEAD ON MY DESK-- "Let me see if I feel led"

Can’t make a decision....Be quick... Be decisive...

When my kids ask me to do something.... NO... YES

If I don’t answer that way.... They Have the Chance to Change My Mind

Christians are waiting for the world to change their mind...

If you want to be STRONG in the LORD...QUIT HESITATING

We’ll see... I don’t know... Let me find out Maybe...Welllll

I tell the staff... IF YOU DON”T NEED MY OPINION... DON”T ASK ME

I’ll have one.... I WON’T HESITATE

Church... FIGURE OUT WHAT YOU WANT FROM: life..Kids...job... Spouse

DON’T HESITATE

3. Persistence refuses to play the blame game....

John 10:18 No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of Myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This command I have received from My Father.”----- I don’t say... I don’t do... When it came to dying... I decide

Take responsibility for yourself... If you goofed up.. ADMIT IT

“Everywhere I go... THIS HAPPENS”... Well the Common Link is YOU

So it’s not the people... everywhere you go

EVERYWHERE YOU GO... YOU”RE THERE

We all have things we could blame Childhood..Parents.. Abuse.. Spouse..Boss
