The past few days I’ve been blogging from Atlanta, Georgia at the Catalyst 2014 Conference. The conference has finished, but with so much truth to chew on we need time to process it all.
Every year Catalyst introduces me to a speaker which I have not previously heard, but gives a message which resonates with my heart. This year that speaker was Robert Madu. His message has been churning in my heart ever since.
Robert is the Evangelist and Teaching Pastor from Trinity Church in Dallas, Texas. He spoke out of the following two passages:
Hebrews 12:1-2 – God has set a race before each and everyone one of us. We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus who initiates and perfects our faith.
1 Samuel 18:5-9 – Saul became jealous of David based on a comparison made between them. He took his eyes off of his own race.
