In this sermon podcast, Mark Lopez is teaching from Hebrews 12:1-7;11. Mark poses seven questions to help guide our understanding of the text. Idea: Christians ought to look to Jesus, who endured the full weight of suffering, and trust in the Father’s benevolent providence through all trials and hardship. The author of Hebrews provides a list of faithful examples in chapter 11. He then uses these examples as a basis for urging his readers to remain faithful. But the point of this passage is not to look to our earthly fathers but to look to Jesus, our ultimate source for finding strength and for obtaining a proper understanding of the heavenly Father’s discipline. Believers look to Christ because he endured suffering for the church’s salvation.
