Are you overweight ?. ( Hebrews 12 v 1 - 2 )
I was watching the ,'World Athletic Championships', and
Mo Farah was running, and of course he won the gold .
The thing that struck me about him was, he is very thin,
and yet he is world champion. The fact is none of the other
competitors carried much weight, fat people don't win
races. It is the writer to the Hebrews who likens the Christian
life, as a race, a spiritual race. He writes to all the competitors
and says,'' Let us lay aside every weight'', The question we all
have to ask ourselves, what is holding us back?, or who is
holding us back?.
Dear Lord and Saviour, grant us grace to rid ourselves of those
things that are weights, that we know is holding us back, be it
so called friends, habits, past experiences, Amen.
