“…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, fixing our eyes on Jesus,the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.” Hebrews 12:1-3
We cannot do what we are intended to do or become who we are intended to be if we are weighted down by: 1) past guilt & shame 2) regrets 3) unforgiveness 4) unrepentant sin 5) the lures of this world 6) harmful people and situations
Cast them off, snip the ties, cut the rope, break free. Paul tells us in Hebrews that we must take the intentional action of throwing EVERYTHING off that stops us from progressing towards Him. What is it for you that slows or stops your progress of becoming more like Christ?
Fix your eyes on Jesus. He is your only solution for throwing them off and breaking free.
“Let us break their chains and throw off their shackles.” Psalm 2:3
