Bible Outlines for Reading, Teaching, or Discussion Groups

The spiritual “race” of 2015 lies before us. How can we run it well?

Hebrews Ch. 12  Run with endurance the race that is set before you.

v.1          Run, laying aside every weight and sin.

v.2-4     Run, looking to Jesus and His example of endurance so that you don’t become weary and discouraged.

v.5-11    Run, being trained by the Father’s chastening unto His holiness.

v.12-13  Run, being careful not to be weak or lax, or to stray off course.

v.14       Run, pursuing peace and holiness with all people.

v.15       Run in the grace of God, letting no root of bitterness spring up to cause trouble.

v.16-17  Run, not forfeiting your inherited blessings for the sake of temporal and lesser ones.

v.18-24  Run, laying aside any terrifying dread of God, but rather rejoicing in Him, and in the realities that we have in Christ.

v.25-29  Run, heeding God as He speaks to you, and serving Him acceptably with reverence and Godly fear.
