Everything that Hinders – Hebrews 12:1

Welcome to Scriptures for Life with TorahFamily.org. Taking time to focus on the Father’s way.

Hebrews 12:1
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.

Our verse here says “let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles.”

“Everything that hinders … AND the sin…”

So what does this tell us? It tells us there can be things in our lives that hinder our walk that doesn’t have to be sin. Did you hear that? There can be things in our lives that hinder our walk that may not be sin. So just because something is not “sin”, it doesn’t mean it’s OK to have in our lives.

Are you willing to purge things from your life that might be holding you back in your walk even though they may not be “sin”? Can you take an unbiased look at your life and examine it to see what may be in your life that’s holding you back from a closer walk with the Father? Remember, it doesn’t have to be sin that He wants you to get rid of.

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, Shalom.
