Therefore let us also, seeing we are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, 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. Hebrews 12.1.

In running, two matters are absolutely important: the one is to lay aside every weight, and the other is to put away sin. Sin hinders progress the most. It disqualifies people from running. Sin is the trespassing of the rules; and he who would trespass the rules is not allowed to run a race. He is ordered to the sidelines. A believer ought to put off and forsake the sin which he knows. Be it jealousy, pride, uncleanness of heart, lies in the mouth, hasty temper, or unrestrained lust–it will make him unfit for the race. A Christian must stand on Romans 6.6 and 6.11 and reckon himself as dead to sin. He must forsake sins and must not allow sin to reign over him. He must also yield his members as instruments of righteousness to God. Whatever offends the Lord must be honestly confessed, repented of, and forsaken so as to obtain God's forgiveness.
