“let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles.” Hebrews 12:1b NIV
What a sense of joy is heard in the invitation to throw off everything that hinders. To run free with faith unhindered and feet untangled in the mission God has created you for.
To first, know Him intimately and to second, serve Him wholeheartedly.
The eleventh chapter of Hebrews paints the faces and hearts of those who served God with great passion and unflinching faithfulness. Those who suffered, risked, obeyed and followed through in their faith.
They are those seated in heavens grandstands, cheering you on.
Telling you to throw off everything that hinders you and run the race God has called you to run.
Let us run free together.
Hold nothing back.
Let go of the fears and failures and embrace of the salvation of Jesus Christ.
Running fast and free is not accomplished by focusing on what is holding you back but by focusing on where you are going.
Turn your face to the finish line and run with His power for His mission and for His glory.
