Summary: Sin weighs you down

Get that monkey off your Back (Heb.12:1)

Intro: Inter the area carrying a stuffed animal monkey on you shoulder act like it gets heavier evert step

The Monkey --little baby monkey--then chimp -the gorilla

Christians are always struggling, one minute they are running on top of the mountain, the wham they are crawling in a deep valley. It seems like they are always stumbling beneath a heavy load, like they have a monkey on their back. What kind of monkeys am I talking about? Those things that cause you to fail in about everything you do those things that hinder your walk with God, those things that will steal your testimony.

Text: 12 We have around us many people whose lives tell us what faith means. So let us run the race that is before us and never give up. We should remove from our lives anything that would get in the way and the sin that so easily holds us back.
