All we need. ( Jude 24 - 25 )
In Hebrews 12 v 1 we read,'let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up'. I heard a Christian song I had not heard before ,the theme of it ,is summed up in the following words,''Anything apart from You,let it fall away''.that is what those words of Hebrews is telling us.Often we are so blinded by so many things that we keep doing things we really need to cast of. Often people do not really see that they have a weight problem,until someone tells them why they have problems coping.Someone I know was visiting a relative, who complained about not having enough money to feed her children,when she was told if she gave up drugs and cigarettes ,she would have enough money to feed her children.She reacted by slapping that person who had dared to challenge her behaviour. Now she is not a Christians ,she needs Christ. Yet what about us who have Christ?,should we not face up to things that we need to cast off. Unlike the non Christian we have Christ,who can grant us the help we need to change,His Spirit dwells in all His children,Here is the word of God for all of us,''His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness '' ( 2 Peter 1 v 3 ). Ask the Saviour to help you.
