EXERCISE. WHO NEEDS IT!
EXERCISE, WHO NEEDS IT? When my wife was in a physical rehabilitation facility two of our friends & fellow Pastors joined me to visit her. When we arrived my wife 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 or my two friends. But she still had to continue her exercising while we retired to the comfort of the waiting room. The right exercise was absolutely essential to my wife’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.
