Where to Find Encouragement When You’re Weary

September 25

Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.

Hebrews 12:1

I went to a retirement party for a friend of mine awhile back. Now, one thing I love about retirement parties is the fact that so many people gather together to reflect on one person’s impact. Stories were shared of how this person had encouraged and inspired others and helped them to not just be better workers, but better people.

As I sat and listened to story after story of how this man had inspired others, I couldn’t help but be reminded of the great cloud of witnesses described in today’s passage – those believers who’ve gone before us who cheer us on and encourage us as brothers and sisters in the faith.

One very clear example of this in my life is my pastor from years ago, Dr. W. Fred Swank. Dr. Swank is now in heaven, but every time I think about him, I’m encouraged by the example he was, and is, to me today. It’s his example that very often gives me the encouragement I need when times get tough.

As we think about the believers who’ve gone before us, cheering us on and encouraging us in the great race of life, that should encourage us. So reflect on those examples of faithfulness, whether you knew them personally or not. They’re there to give you hope and strength to run the great race of life!

FIND ENCOURAGEMENT TO RUN THE GREAT RACE OF LIFE BY LOOKING TO THOSE WHO’VE GONE BEFORE YOU AND FOLLOWING THEIR EXAMPLE!

About PowerPoint

PowerPoint Ministries is the radio and television broadcast ministry of Jack Graham, pastor of Prestonwood Baptist Church — a nearly 37,000-member church with three campuses in the Dallas and North Texas region. Through PowerPoint Ministries, Dr. Graham offers practical, biblical steps on how to tap into God's power for successful Christian living.

About Jack Graham

PowerPoint Ministries is the radio and television broadcast ministry of Dr. Jack Graham in Plano, Texas. Dr. Graham is the pastor of Prestonwood Baptist Church, one of the nation's largest, most dynamic congregations.

When Dr. Graham came to Prestonwood in 1989, the 8,000-member congregation responded enthusiastically to his straightforward message and powerful preaching style. He challenged the Prestonwood family with a vision for a larger outreach, and in 1999, the church moved from its North Dallas location to a new 7,500-seat auditorium in west Plano.

Thriving with more than 33,000 members, Prestonwood continues to grow with seven weekend worship services, four midweek services, about 300 Bible Fellowship classes for all ages, and multiple outreach and community ministries that reach thousands. In 2006, the church added a second location, the North Campus, in a burgeoning area 20 miles north of Plano. And in 2011, Prestonwood returned to its roots—beginning its third location, the Dallas Campus, about two from miles from its original location.

Dr. Graham has served two terms as president of the Southern Baptist Convention, the largest American Protestant denomination, with 16 million members and as president of the SBC Pastor’s Conference.

He is a noted author of numerous books, including You Can Make a Difference, Lessons from the Heart, A Hope and a Future, Life According to Jesus, Are you Fit for Life? and Powering Up. Courageous Parenting, co-authored by his wife, Deb, is based on their experiences as parents. Dr. Graham’s passionate, biblical teaching is also seen and heard across the country and throughout the world on PowerPoint Ministries. Through broadcasts, online sermons and e-mail messages, he addresses relevant, everyday issues that are prevalent in our culture and that strike a chord with audiences worldwide.

Dr. Graham was ordained to the Gospel ministry in 1970, and has a master of divinity degree with honors and a doctor of ministry degree in Church and Proclamation from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
