Run the Race

Heb 12:1 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 hinders our progress. And let us run with endurance the race that God has set before us. 2 We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, on whom our faith depends from start to finish. 3 Think about all he endured when sinful people did such terrible things to him, so that you don't become weary and give up.

We are told here to put aside our sin. Although it may be difficult, it is possible because we are told to do it. We all have a race set out before us and we have been given all we need to run that race. Don’t allow yourself to be ensnared by sin, keep your focus on the goal and use all that you have been given, to finish in victory.
