The Steeplechase

Pete Briscoe

Overcoming Hurdles to Following Christ 

The steeplechase is an incredibly challenging obstacle race. It requires runners to jump over 28 barriers and 7 water jumps in a 1.8 mile course! It's long, tiring, and requires a lot of strength from beginning to end. 

Sound a bit like life? Many of us wish our faith walk was more like a sprint—not too taxing and delivering quick results. Or a marathon, which is extremely long, but usually on flat, predictable terrain. But the Christian life is more like the steeplechase because it requires stamina to successfully leap over the hurdles. 

In this compelling teaching by Pete, he shows us some of the most common hurdles we face in our faith, and then shares the encouraging words of Scripture that explain how we can bound over them and reach the finish line!

  1. 2. Chasing Away Temporality

    Pete Briscoe

    We are told in Scripture that we are "sojourners," or "aliens" here on earth. We are here for a short time to make a huge difference in people's lives. But so often we set our roots down, and we start living life here as comfortably as we possibly can, as if we're always going to be here. Scripture challenges us to rethink this mindset.

    Scripture:  1 Timothy 6:6 - 6:10 , 1 Timothy 6:17 - 6:19
