Keep the Faith

Stuart Briscoe

“Christianity is no more than one generation away from extinction! … What the coming generations need is a healthy Church made up of people who are not taking a stroll in the park, but who are running a race!” – Stuart Briscoe

Stuart covers a lot of territory in this 8-message series based on Hebrews. From reviewing the foundational building blocks of faith to exposing the undisputed influence of the secular world on all ages of believers, there’s biblical truth throughout to make us all pause and consider how well we are running the race and what it means to Keep the Faith.

Messages From This Series:

Hebrews addressed a struggling group of Jewish believers discovering that discipleship would not be easy as Jesus had warned. In it they were encouraged to “keep the faith,” warned of the dangers of failure to do so, and reminded how to mature in their faith. But they must be willing to move beyond faith’s fundamentals—to make progress and mature.

Scripture: Hebrews 5:11-6:3

Given the experiences they had gone through and the possibilities of further problems, it is understandable that some of the Hebrew Christians were possibly losing their nerve. They needed assurance, which the author of Hebrews provided for them—and us.

Scripture: Hebrews 10:19-10:39

“Whom we confess” and “the faith we profess” are both translations of the Greek word homologia, which is defined as “an act of proclamation in which the concrete relation of man to Jesus is expressed in binding and valid form.” Jesus expressed the importance of such a homologia (Matthew 10:32), and Hebrews confirmed it.

Scripture: Hebrews 4:1-4:16

It’s easy to place your faith in people, parties, and programs. But it’s impossible for all those things to sustain and uphold your heart.

When patience wears thin and genuine hope is all you long for, the “who” of faith matters greatly. And there’s no better Who than the Lord, our God.

In this message, Stuart Briscoe opens Scripture to reveal the character of our promise-keeping God. He is true, He is faithful—and there’s no better place for your faith to be than in Him.

Scripture: Hebrews 6:1-6:20

Having encouraged his readers to “keep the faith” despite the pressures under which they were living, and having delivered warnings to them about the dangers of abandoning the faith, our writer now defines, describes, and illustrates faith and hope so that there will be no confusion.

Scripture: Hebrews 11:1-11:40

Various metaphors have been used to describe the Christian life. Some see it as a war to be fought, others as a party to be enjoyed, others as a task to be completed, and still others as a race to be run. The writer of Hebrews chooses the race metaphor.

Scripture: Hebrews 12:1-12:3

The contemporary debate on discipline has led to a dramatic decrease in child abuse and an equally dramatic increase in ill-disciplined children and many attendant social ills. But we must understand the significant role discipline plays in spiritual experience.

Scripture: Hebrews 12:4-12:13

The letter to the Hebrews, as is common with New Testament epistles, having dealt with many deep theological issues, is brought to a conclusion with many essential, practical instructions. A healthy reminder that faith is not just a matter of belief—it involves behavior, too. 

Scripture: Hebrews 12:14-12:29
