The Christian life is like a marathon race. Get rid of anything that is weighing you down. Our One Verse today is packed full of awesomeness. In one simple verse, we can see three key principles for our spiritual lives. First, we learn that we are surrounded by a “cloud of witnesses.” We don’t really know who these witnesses are, but one thing is certain. Heaven is cheering you on. Our One Verse also tells us that the Christian life is a marathon, not a sprint. It takes perseverance. It takes discipline. Stick with it. Finally, it we are running a race, we need to remove any weight that is holding us back. We know we need to get rid of sin in our lives. But what else is in your life that is holding you back? It might not be sin, but it is getting in the way of God’s best for your life? Let’s remove anything that hinders us from running our race well.
