We were under God’s curse, doomed forever for our sins. We went along with the crowd and were just like all the others, full of sin, obeying Satan, the mighty prince of the power of the air, who is at work right now in the hearts of those who are against the Lord. Our sins telling your mouth what to say! Our words based on clever deception.
We follow God’s example in everything we do just as a much loved child imitates his father.
We keep putting into practice all we learn from others and see them doing.
We have such a huge crowd of men of faith watching us, so we strip off anything that slows us down or holds us back, and especially those sins that wrap themselves so tightly around our feet and trip us up; and let us run with patience the particular race that God has set before us.
