“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us.” Hebrews 12:1
You are a witness to those around you of Jesus’s power in your life. But often it’s easy to take the grace that we’re under for granted, and allow things into our lives that don’t seem that harmful at first. Don’t let sin weigh you down from God’s purposes for your life!
What is bringing destruction in your life? Maybe you think it’s harmless, but deep down you know it’s bringing you down. What is poisoning you – maybe it’s a habit, an attitude, a relationship. Whatever it is, choose to cut it off today. You have the power to allow it to destroy your life. Don’t let it!
Jesus I surrender ______ to you. I don’t want to let anything poison my life, or hold me back from your plans for me. Free me from this today and give me the strength to walk away. Amen.
