2015 hero card frontIt’s here! The 2016 season is upon us and everyone is very excited to get started! The teams have been preparing and the venues have been set. The social media buzz is contagious!

We at IndyCar Ministry are excited as well, but maybe for a slightly different reason… You see when Jesus was here on this earth, He had one goal to the race He was running. He had His eyes set on one thing, not to win a trophy or to be recognized, but he was determined to make it to the cross to die for you and me; the ultimate sacrifice.

Listen to what this verse says…

Hebrews 12:1-2 – Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

One of the key points of these verses is “the joy set before him he endured the cross”. He was set resolutely on what God had set before him. That was to run that race and make it to the cross. That is why He came. That’s the race he ran.

We at IndyCar Ministry are also set resolutely at what God has placed before us. That is why we are excited. We feel 2016 is going to be a great year where God is glorified and proclaimed! In our preparations for this season, we have already seen God working in remarkable ways.

We also rest on this promise…

Proverbs 16:3 – Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and he will establish your plans.

We have committed this ministry to the Lord and we are excited about His plans. We are excited to see what God will do this 2016 season.

Are ready to run this race with us?
