 Baggage-Unclaimed Baggage                          Hebrews 12:1-2

Let’s also run the race.

Hebrews 12:1-2

1) So then let’s also run the race that is laid out in front of us, since we ave such a great cloud of witnesses surrounding us.  Let’s throw off any extra baggage, get rid of the sin that trips us up, 2) and fix our eyes on Jesus, faith’s pioneer and perfecter.  He endured the cross, ignoring the shame for the sake of the job that was laid out in front of him, and sat down at the right side of God’s throne.
Faithful and fruitful discipleship takes perseverance.  It is more like running a marathon than a sprint.  We have a crowd cheering us on.  We are to “throw off any extra baggage…”
What baggage are still holding on to?   Are you gaining anything from holding on to that baggage?  What could you GAIN by letting the baggage go unclaimed?
