Fixing my eyes on Jesus
Pastor Todd Dugard
Hebrews 12:1–2
September 9–10, 2017

To live a life that is both God-pleasing and personally fulfilling, I must fix my eyes on Jesus…

…as so many others have in the past (v. 1a)

…by removing all obstacles to faith (v. 1b)

…while persevering through all circumstances (v. 1c)

…and fully embracing Jesus as (v. 2)

…my Saviour – “founder of our faith”
…my Lord – “perfecter of our faith”
…my Example – “endured the cross”
…my God – “seated at the right hand of the throne of God”
