Hebrews 12:1 NLT  Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us.

Usually when an individual decides to lose weight, the goal is to lose the weight and keep it off.  A nutritionist will educate an individual on certain food that may hinder the weight lost process.

As born again believers we need to pay attention to what is weighing us down on our journey of faith.  The writer of Hebrews identifies sin as what trips an individual who is running the Spiritual race.

Remember, it is sin to know what you ought to do and then not do it (James 4:17 NLT).

Take it off and keep it off, and stay in the race.

We do not need to be weighed down, from fulfilling God’s will for our lives.   If we seek God he will give us the wisdom that we need to follow his plans in our journey of faith.
