Heb12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,


A man wanted to run a 100m race. He backed his baby, he carried two baskets on his hands and he wore construction boot. Instead of dressing smart, he wore a flowing robe.

When the race started, his fellow sprinters had finished and almost forgotten that they ran a 100m dash. He was struggling to make it to the finish line. By the time he got half-way, he was weak and exhausted. He collapsed on the track in full glare of everyone.

That story depicts our Christian race. No weak man can run the race successfully except the excesses are dropped.

Sin is an excess that must be dropped and laid aside if we must get to the finish line. When secret sins creep into a man’s life, it saps strength and forms a heavy load that impedes progress.

Sometimes, weights seems light but the lighter they seem to us, the heavier they’re to God. Look at it this way, as little as unforgiveness or bitterness is, it may weaken us much more than we can imagine.

Most times, we are quick to point out ‘big sins’ like fornication but the bible says it is little foxes that spoil the vine. As little as they are, they have a spoiling power. Little but potent.

Satan uses ‘little’ sins we don’t count to weaken our spiritual lives. Gossip is little but it does much harm than good to our spiritual life.

Take us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil the vines: for our vines have tender grapes ( SoS 2:15).

I am not in any way supporting any form of sin but the point I’m driving at is that ‘little’ sins saps much spiritual strength just as ‘big sins’ would.

In actual spiritual sense, there are no big or small sins. Sin is sin. I hope you understand me?

In Acts3:19, Apostle Peter gave us a clue on what to do if we want our strength to be restored: *”Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;*”.

Repentance is the key. Have you lost your spiritual strength? Identify what has made you weak and repent immediately.

PRAYER: Father, I receive grace to forsake all that has contributed to my spiritual weakness In Jesus name.
