How well am I running for God?

Hebrews Ch. 12 Personal Application Questions:

v.1  Do the Biblical examples of the lives and choices of its faithful witnesses strengthen my endurance? Which ones are the most meaningful to me? Why?

v.1  Have I laid aside the encumbrances and sins that hinder me from running with endurance?

v.2  Do I go through life with my eyes fixed on Jesus and the example of His endurance?

v.3  Have I received such criticism or hostility from others that I have grown weary and discouraged?

v.5  Do I regard God’s discipline of me lightly, or am I careful to let Him correct my course, my attitude, my style of relating to others, and so forth?

v.6  Do I view God’s discipline as an expression of His love for me?

v.10  Am I letting God’s discipline change me for the better—unto His holiness?

v.12-13  How strong is my commitment to running the race?

v.12-13  Am I careful not to be weak or lax, or to stray off course?

v.14  Am I pursuing peace and holiness in my relationships with others?

v.15  Do I have any roots of bitterness that are causing me trouble?

v.24-25  Am I heeding Christ’s instruction and guidance?

v.25  How often during the race, do I refuse Him who speaks to me?

v.26-28  Is God’s kingdom the solid foundation of my life’s race, or is it something that can be shaken?

v.28  Am I serving God “acceptably with reverence and Godly fear”?

v.29  How compassionately do I view the lost whose only alternative to faith in Christ is everlasting judgment?
