Dress Down

I don’t have trouble choosing my swim suit. Early in my swimming interest, I already like one-piece swimsuits with an “X” back. Later I also learned that I should choose a one-piece suit that fits my body perfectly, one size smaller and with non-slip straps. I also like durable nylon models with plenty of spandex. The sophisticated synthetic fibre resists the harshness of chlorine.

It’s not just swimmers but all athletes must dress down and choose their clothing properly if they’re serious in developing unencumbered motion. When your dress fits snugly, just like a second skin, you could easily move around. For cross country skiers, you could endure harsh winds and high piles of snow. For swimmers, you could lessen the resistance of water to your body.

The Bible says that we must lay aside every weight and sin that easily ensnares us. We should remove the ‘fat racks’ so that our lives are manageable and our challenges much more enduring.

Our God asks us to “run with endurance” not to “run with speed”. So, slow down. Enjoy the life that God has given us. Savour the beauty of His blessings. Give time to meditate on His faithfulness in our lives. Don’t fatten up. Dress down.

Hebrews 12:1-2
Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Very interesting approach to the subject. Appreciated your "take". Hope to see you back on the Challenge - you have much to share.

Catchy title, interesting first paragraph about the "one piece" with X at the back ( smile ). I'm too shy to "dress down" but as far as my walk with God is concerned, it takes God's grace and mercy to strip myself of all the weaknesses and struggles, the extra "fat" of sins. aBut praise God, although i"m not sinless, I am aware now that I sin less. Father in Heaven, remind us always that we are weak, but Thou art strong, Amen.

God is my personal trainer too, who helps me to be free of bondage and keeps me in the running. Loved the wisdom you gained from that well known scripture.
