How to let go of the stuff that’s bringing you down


Hebrews 12:1-2: Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.


Discuss / describe one fleshly appetite that is preventing you from obeying God, such as a hunger for money, sex, or power. Ask yourself, is this desire worth causing you to miss God’s best?


Dear Lord, I know that I am surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses. Help me see just which weight and sin I need to lay aside. I want to run the race set before me with endurance! In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
