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. - Hebrew 12:1
We are not without examples of those that have lived a life of trusting in God. “All these people earned a good reputation because of their faith, yet none of them received all that God had promised"
- Hebrews 11:39
The heroes of faith were still in pursuit of God’s promises at the completion of their race how much more should we be going after the promises of God in 2018. Lay aside every weight and sin that trips us up.
