I thank You so much for the abundant life You give freely to all who accept Your gospel message. I want to learn more about my identity in You, and the freedom found in You, and all these "phrases" that get thrown around, but in all honesty, I'm not sure what they really mean. Help me to lay aside every weight and the sin which so easily drags me down, and run towards understanding Your ways of freedom, peace, and all things good.
Hebrews 12:1-2 "Herefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God."
John 10:10 "The thief comes not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly."
