“But we are not those who draw back and are destroyed, but those who have faith and obtain life.” Hebrews 10:39
Theme Passage: Hebrews 10:19-25
RE-LENT-LESS – Unyielding. Unbending. Determination. Never-ceasing. Fierce. Persistence.
The heart of every champion is RELENTLESS. The passionate pursuit of greatness propels the athlete to the edge of his or her ability and beyond. Fierce persistence and unyielding determination define the great competitors throughout history. They were RELENTLESS in conditioning, RELENTLESS in practice and RELENTLESS in competition. Their never-ceasing commitment to excellence brings out the best in them and those around them. It defines how they become the best that they can be.
God’s love for us and His pursuit of us is RELENTLESS. His plan for us is to have abundant and eternal life in Jesus Christ. When we relentlessly pursue God with a desperate, determined heart, God will use us to the edge of our abilities and beyond. It’s time to live like a champion for the Lord. It’s time to be RELENTLESS!
