Watch That Besetting Sin

Hebrews 12:1 KJV 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,
 
Yesterday, we saw that in order to run our race with patience we needed to lay aside all of our burdens. Today, we will see that we also need to lay aside the sin that easily trips us up. The verse here calls it a besetting sin. Each of us have a particular sin that trips us up. No one is exempt from a besetting sin. No one is above having a besetting sin. It is very likely that we each know all too well what our besetting sin is. We need to identify it, avoid it, and make no provisions for falling into our besetting sin. This will help us to lay it aside and run our race with patience.
