Hebrews 12:1

".....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." NIV

".....Let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us." KJV

If we are standing firm in our faith and walking in love, we will be getting rid of those things in our lives that hinder our Christian journey. We will be turning our back on temptation and sin and we will be leaving behind relationships that are ungodly. It is much easier to run this race without these cumbersome hindrances. Much more so, we are to run this race. Yes, run. It takes effort and energy with the grace and mercy of God to run without giving up. There are so many things that will fall in our path that will tempt us to stop or slow down. With all the hindrances aside and our eyes fixed on our Lord, we will be able to run this race to the finish, where we will spend eternity with Him.

Heavenly Father, give us determination to get rid of those things that hinder our walk with You. Help us to keep our eyes on You so that we will run this race to the finish. We ask in Jesus' name, Amen.
