EXERCISE, WHO NEEDS IT? Two of our friends & fellow Pastors joined me to visit Millie at rehab yesterday. When we arrived Millie was in the therapy room working on her arms and hands. She wasted no time in telling me she had a few pains; and she wasn’t talking about me, Elysee or Dumont. But she still had to continue her exercising while we retired to the comfort of the waiting room. The right exercise is absolutely essential to Millie’s recovery. Her mission for the moment was soon accomplished and then we were all together catching up on the events in our lives.
Right exercise is something we all need and that is also true in our spiritual lives as well. No exercise and fat or flab appears. No bible reading/study/application or prayer and sin appears. Lack of physical exercise drags a body down and lack of building spiritual muscles through God’s food for the soul produces weak and powerless Christians without godliness. The Apostle Paul reminded Timothy, “Train yourself to be godly. For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come, (1 Timothy 4:7-8 NIV). Get the right exercise today. You will be glad you did.
