Knock, Knock… Friday Bible Blessings is at Your Door. Today’s special delivery verse is from Hebrew 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.”
As followers of Christ, we will be able to run further and faster if we don’t have sin clinging to us and weighing us down. If you want your relationship with God to go to the next level then it starts with you stripping down from sin.
If you want to pick up the pace in your pursuit of Jesus, then start by stripping off any form of sin, because that is weighing you down. While this is true physically, it is also true spiritually. Sin will cling to us and weigh us down so that we aren’t able to pursue Jesus like we could if we weren’t carrying sinful habits or bad attitudes.
Sin slows you down, so strip it off! Jesus has too much in store for your life for you to be weighed down. Start running the race with endurance and keep your eyes on Jesus He is calling you forward.
