Title: “Cutting Off the Weights That Hinder Us”

Scripture Reading: Hebrews 12:1 (NIV)

“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.”

In our journey of faith, we often encounter things that hinder our progress and weigh us down. Today, we explore Hebrews 12:1 and the call to “cut them off” so we can run the race of faith with perseverance.

Identifying the Weights:
The passage urges us to throw off “everything that hinders.” These “weights” can be attitudes, habits, distractions, or relationships that slow our spiritual progress.

Breaking Free from Sin:
We’re also called to “cut off the sin that so easily entangles.” Sin can be a heavy burden that keeps us from running the race effectively.

Running with Perseverance:
As we shed these hindrances and sins, we can run the race of faith with perseverance, following the path marked out for us by God.

Heavenly Father, help us to identify and cut off the weights that hinder our spiritual progress. Give us the strength to break free from sin and run the race of faith with perseverance. May we fix our eyes on Jesus, the author, and perfecter of our faith. In His name, we pray. Amen.

Colossians 3:5 (NIV) – “Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires, and greed, which is idolatry.”
Philippians 3:13-14 (NIV) – “Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”
May this devotion on Hebrews 12:1 inspire you to identify and “cut off” the weights that hinder your spiritual journey. By shedding these burdens and breaking free from sin, you can run the race of faith with perseverance, following the path marked out by God.
