Keep your eyes on Jesus, who began and finished this race we’re in. Hebrews 12:2    When my boys were little they loved a good chase around the lounge room before they got sent off to bed. It was the game we jokingly called ‘smacking hands.’ They’d run round and round in circles with me…

STEPS OF FAITH Hebrews 11:8   “By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going.” Hebrews tells us that Abraham went, not knowing where he was going. When God asks you to go,…
