Running With the BIG DOGS
In our last week of the Running with the Big Dogs message series, we will take one more lap around life with the biggest dog of all: Jesus. Hebrews 12 tells us that to win at this race of life we must keep our eyes on Jesus. Let’s take that last lap wrap around with Big Dog Jesus.

This week, we look at Rebekah, a strong “dog” of faith and we ask ourselves, what do you do when someone needs or asks for help? Are you generous or are you focussed on something else.
In this series we’ll look several of the “BIG DOGS” in the Bible, and how they lived in amazing ways, did incredible things for God. What if, in our life’s race, we could do on lap around the track with one of these BIG DOGS of faith and what would they say to us that could keep us going.
