Preek van 10.01.2010 – Hebreërs 12:1,2

https://www.thegospelcoalition.org/article/book-reviews-for-the-glory

Hier is ‘n preek wat ek gelewer het op 10 Januarie 2010: Die oog gevestig op Jesus

Die teks was:

Hebr. 12:1-2 “Daarom dan, terwyl ons so ‘n groot wolk van getuies rondom ons het, laat ons ook elke las aflê en die sonde wat ons so maklik omring, en met volharding die wedloop loop wat voor ons lê, 2 die oog gevestig op Jesus, die Leidsman en Voleinder van die geloof, wat vir die vreugde wat Hom voorgehou is, die kruis verdra het, die skande verag het en aan die regterkant van die troon van God gaan sit het.”

Tema: Die wedloop wat ons met volharding moet hardloop

1. Ons hardloop nie alleen nie (v.1a)
2. Ons moet die laste en sondes aflê in die wedloop (v.1b)
3. Ons moet hardloop met die oog gevestig op Jesus (v.2)

Die oog gevestig op Jesus

 

‘n Paar aanhalings uit die film Chariots of Fire (1981), wat Eric Liddell se deelname aan die wedloop van die geloof beskryf:

“I believe God made me for a purpose, but he also made me fast. And when I run I feel His pleasure.”

“You came to see a race today. To see someone win. It happened to be me. But I want you to do more than just watch a race. I want you to take part in it. I want to compare faith to running in a race. It’s hard. It requires concentration of will, energy of soul. You experience elation when the winner breaks the tape – especially if you’ve got a bet on it. But how long does that last? You go home. Maybe you’re dinner’s burnt. Maybe you haven’t got a job. So who am I to say, “Believe, have faith,” in the face of life’s realities? I would like to give you something more permanent, but I can only point the way. I have no formula for winning the race. Everyone runs in her own way, or his own way. And where does the power come from, to see the race to its end? From within. Jesus said, “Behold, the Kingdom of God is within you. If with all your hearts, you truly seek me, you shall ever surely find me.” If you commit yourself to the love of Christ, then that is how you run a straight race.”


Eric Liddell: God made countries, God makes kings, and the rules by which they govern. And those rules say that the Sabbath is His. And I for one intend to keep it that way.

RH Edward, Prince of Wales: There are times when we are asked to make sacrifices in the name of that loyalty. And without them our allegiance is worthless. As I see it, for you, this is such a time.
Eric Liddell: Sir, God knows I love my country. But I can’t make that sacrifice.
