It Starts With Me Stripping Down
As followers of Christ, we will be able to run further faster if we don’t have sin clinging to us and weighing us down. If you want your relationship with Jesus to go to the next level then it starts with you stripping down.
There is a good reason why marathon runners look the way they do instead of looking like power-lifters or NFL players. Because they don’t carry a lot of extra weight, they are able to run further faster. While this is true physically, it is also true spiritually. Sin will cling to us and weigh us down so that we aren’t able to pursue Jesus like we could if we weren’t carrying sinful habits or bad attitudes.
If you want to pick up the pace in your pursuit of Jesus, then start by stripping off the sin that is weighing you down. This could be ending a bad relationship, talking to a leader about your addiction, forgiving someone who hurt you in the past, or asking your parents forgiveness for the way you have been treating them. All of these things, whether big or small, add weight to our lives and slow us down in our pursuit of Jesus.
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, 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.
Hebrews 12:1-2 NIV
“In your anger do not sin” : Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry,
Ephesians 4:26 NIV
Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
Ephesians 4:32 NIV
