Let GO what’s slows you!
If you decided to run a race, you couldn’t do it successfully with unnecessary baggage. You wouldn’t wear many layers of clothes, if you do then that would be a disaster! People who run races strip down to the bare essentials—a pair of shorts, a t-shirt, and the lightest pair of shoes they can find. They don’t want to carry anything they don’t absolutely need.
You’re in a race, too. That’s how the Bible describes the Christian life—the journey to becoming more like Jesus.
Hebrews 12:1 says, “Let us strip off anything that slows us down or holds us back, and especially those sins that wrap themselves so tightly around our feet and trip us up; and let us run with patience the particular race that God has set before us”.
Once you decide to run, you have to get rid of anything that drags you down. You have to eliminate the sins that entangle you. You have to get rid of the expectations (your own and the expectations of others). You have to let go of your own plans and surrender to God’s purpose and to His plan.
When you do all of that, you’re telling God, “I’m ready to become the person you’ve called me to be. I’m ready for my race.”
That’s the first step to running a great race.
Run the Race. Do the good fight!
His coming is closer. Lets prepare!
Be ye doers of the Word!

Live Sermon by Pastor Blessen Cherian on 8-Nov-19 at The Church of the Redeemed Remnant
“But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one.
For “who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him?” But we have the mind of Christ.”
1 Corinthians 2:14-16 “And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ. I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; for you are still carnal. For where there are envy, strife, and divisions among you, are you not carnal and behaving like mere men?
For when one says, “I am of Paul,” and another, “I am of Apollos,” are you not carnal?” 1 Corinthians 3:1-4
Message From The Word – You are one of these three people – Pastor Blessen Cherian – 8th November 2019
There are times when life is overwhelming, when all we have is questions. In those moments, hope can feel far away. The great thing about prayer is that it shifts our perspective toward the One who stands ready to listen. No matter what you’re facing, we’d love to pray with you!
