“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,” (Hebrews 12:1). The author of Hebrews refers to life as a race that we are running. As we run our race, there are hindrances to our running. What is the sin that so easily entangles you or me? Is it that we are jealous of what someone else has? Is it envy? Is it a Critical spirit? Is it hatred? Is it lust? Pride? Whatever sin it is, it must be stripped off and left behind! As long as you carry this sin, it will weigh you down, divert your attention, sap your strength or dampen your enthusiasm for the things of God. Repent of your sin and ask God to forgive you, then get to running.
Have a Blessed Day!
