“let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles.” Hebrews 12:1b NIV
Can you imagine what it might be like to run with faith unhindered and un-entangled?
To not trip on THAT one sin that always pulls you down?
To go to God for what you need instead of _____________ (fill in the blank).
To serve Him freely and be able to focus completely on what He has set before you without the vines of habitual sin entangling around your ankles or the hinderance of what is always holding you back.
If our forefathers and foremothers could sit you and down give you a word of advice, they would say this: “Get rid of it. Your life is precious and short. The sooner you throw off what hinders you from walking in full obedience the better.”
What is the thing that hinders you from full obedience to God?
What is the sin that so easily entangled and trips you up?
Both things have been broken by the power of the Cross. Jesus has already taken the punishment so that you could run without them- so that you could run free.
Let go, throw it off and learn how to run free in Christ.
