Well… it’s the beginning of a new year and many of us have resolved to shed those unwanted pounds that hold on to us like glue. In fact, the gyms, and workout facilities are crowded with folks who have recommitted themselves to losing that extra weight. Even if we don’t have any unwanted body weight to lose, this is also a good time to recommit ourselves to improving our spiritual health as well, by losing the weight that has jeopardized our spiritual well-being.
Lets focus ourselves to daily consumption of His word, exercising our prayer capacity, and laying off the stuff that junks up our spirit. This way we will prosper physically, mentally and spiritually in this New Year.
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. Hebrews 12:1 (NLT)
