Take off the weight

Hebrews 12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and sin which doth easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.

For training, I have a weighted vest that weighs 15 lbs or so and when I run with it it is very difficult but it is amazing when I take it off after running with it for a while. It feels like I am lighter than a feather. The same applies in our spiritual walk when we load ourselves down with sin or weight which isn't limited to just sin maybe its stress or burdens and we don't totally let it go and give it to God those things will feel like we are carrying a ton. Let it go and see how much lighter you will feel.

1 Corinthians 10:13 There hath not temptation taken you but such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above what you are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

God has already made a way for you to lay your burdens and weights down. Don't carry it any longer. Lay it at the cross today and run the race God has for you.

Have a Great Day

Pastor Chris Rich
