"I press toward the goal to the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus." – Philippians 3:14 (MEV)

The ideal Christian finds his ultimate satisfaction and fulfilment in pursuing God in Christ. Every second, every moment of his life becomes full of purpose and joy when he is zealous in his pursuit of God, and he will only find contentment in God Himself.

Sadly, many Christians who desire to pursue God are weighed down by heavy weights that are hard to carry. Just like how swimmers struggle to stay afloat – by letting go of the weight or moving away from the current that pulls them beneath the surface of the water – Christians who desire to pursue the Lord God in all force need to let go of many weights.

We all need to let go of unhealthy habits that hinder or stop us from pursuing God.

Unpacking and Unloading

Hebrews 12:1 tells us, "Therefore, since we are encompassed with such a great cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight and the sin that so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us."

We are indeed commanded to lay aside whatever is stopping us from obeying God.

Here are some unhealthy and bad habits that we all need to let go of if we want to go light and follow God.

1. Self-Condemnation

This nasty habit often disguises itself as "humility" or a "repentant attitude." Many believers who condemn themselves for sins past and God-forgiven are the ones setting themselves up for another failure. We should own up to our sins and confess them before God, and then repent of them, but we should never condemn ourselves for what God has already forgiven us.

Instead of condemning ourselves, we should "go and sin no more." (see John 8:11)

3. Refusing Correction

Those who refuse godly correction from the Word of God will get nowhere in their faith. Seriously. Allow Proverbs 15:31-33, written by the wisest man who ever lived, to explain it to you:

"The ear that hears the reproof of life abides among the wise. He who refuses instruction despises his own soul, but he who hears reproof gains understanding. The fear of the Lord is the instruction of wisdom, and before honor is humility." (MEV)
