Sometimes in our lives we keep adjusting to the burdens and weights of life. We carry our hurt and pain from our childhood—from things said to us or done to us. We don’t ever really deal with it we just add a little weight and adjust to it. We carry words and labels that were spoken to us. We carry breakups, friends who’ve burned us, or tough work experiences. We carry the burden of a marriage that didn’t work out, a family that didn’t stay together, or a career that blew out. We carry the weight of unforgiveness, bitterness, and anger toward those who have wronged us. Some carry the weight of addiction—something that has gotten a hold of us that we can’t seem to get out from under. It weighs us down and gets heavier and heavier. In general we carry the weight of sin. Sin means to miss the mark, and the Bible says all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. The solution to our sin problem isn’t simply one more thing, but it is new life that God gives from the inside out.
