Walter Stanley - Hebrews 12

Hebrews 12:1-3

Cain & Abel----(Suffers)
(Jealous of righteous Abel)

Sometimes we get discouraged & fail 
     If we know that suffering is coming (expect it), we can use it to strengthen our faith.

Enoch was taken because he had confidence in God.
     Speaks of believers today
     Joy of knowing he pleased God
     We have the same calling today.

"We must do the things that honor the Lord. If we fear Him, then we will do the things that honor the Lord."

Cloud of Witnesses
Those who went before and sufficiently pleased the Lord with their lives
     Examples to us
     We should live pure lives.

"We have a savior that is able to keep us & deliver us & make us into what he wants us to be."

"The Lord will bring about what is just; what is right. We just need to be faithful."

The Lord finished what He came here to do.
     He took the sting of sin.

(5-8) Chastening sometimes is good.
     That's why we rejoice in suffering.

Conclusion: Be not discouraged. God is faithful & working in your life.
