Baggage...

So, today I went to Birchfield church to see a couple of young people get baptised (which was amazing). And the head of the church showed this video about carrying Baggage. Its a really amazing video and made me think - what is the baggage in my life?

When we are/get/were baptised we died to our sinful nature, we left our baggage in our old life and started a fresh life. But I wonder, what baggage have we either re-picked up, or picked up for the first time since that day of baptism?

Christ invites us to leave our baggage at the cross with him.  Matthew 11v28 says: Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest."

What are you lugging around with you? What is making it difficult for you to follow Christ today? Is it a situation? Is it an attitude? Is it a past hurt or experience?

I challenge you (and myself) to leave it at the cross today, let Jesus take care of it, and walk freely with God.
