Drop The Dead Weights
Hebrews 12:1 KJV
Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us , and let us run with patience the race that is set before us…
Paul likens the believer’s walk to a journey or a voyage. I am of the opinion that the ultimate goal for everyone that is on a journey is to reach their destination in the quickest time possible. But even though you may not be in a hurry, I highly doubt that you’d want to carry anything that would slow you down or weigh you down. This is the issue the Apostle Paul is addressing here.
What exactly are these weights? For everyone, the weight will be different. For some, it may be sleep, laziness to pray, distractions of entertainment, things that keep you from spending quality time with God. We all know what our weights are. Do endeavor to drop your weight and run with freedom that is in Christ. Let nothing slow you down. Let nothing weigh you down.
#Pray Thank you Lord for setting me free. I lay every weight of mine down and run with you without any hindrance
