"Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us 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." Heb. 12:1.
NOTE.-The "every weight" here introduced includes those traits of character and habits of life that would clog one's path, and be a hindrance in running successfully the Christian race. These are to be laid aside. But there is one other thing that is here considered more than a weight: it is a sin, and one that so easily besets all. It is the sin of unbelief. To be unbelieving is to be sinful.
