Are you staying fit?
of the people I know love spending their time working out. No shame
in fellowshipping while lifting weights. But I started thinking the
other day, while I was running, about fitness. Spending time with
people who are fit, makes you wonder how fit people are in the Lord.
Last week, I
read an article about obesity. What often causes obesity? Well,
there is malnourishment which often causes those who are lacking
money to spend what little they have on a junkfood diet. Of course,
this explains the popularity of chips, fast food burgers, and cheap
restaurants popping up every street corner. I had a coworker who
would ask me every Friday if I wanted a, “Fat and Nasty” for
lunch. He meant, of course, a juicy, fast food burger. Now,
sometimes I would say yes. Funny, every time I said yes, my body
would feel slow and sluggish after indulging on a thick cheeseburger.
At the moment, I didn't regret it. The grease was heavy and the
cheese was just overwhelmingly yummy. Then, of course, I ate the
fries with it. Every bite made me happy. But later on, I felt less
than 50% my normal, happy self. I didn't have the same amount of
energy, and my body was rejecting the grease I had eaten.
in life is the same. When we don't feed ourselves with the Word of
God, we choose other options to satisfy our hunger. Often we seek
the ways of the World. Sin becomes our Dollar Menu, lust looks like a
fatty cheeseburger. After awhile, we are so heavy into the world,
that it takes a process to give up that lifestyle, pick up the Word
of God, and start walking. Just like being overweight can kill you,
so does sin.
6:23- 23 For the wages of sin is death, but the
gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Become fit in the Lord today, so you will have the strength to reject those painful fillers that tempt us. The more you lean on the Lord, the stronger you get.
Fitness is not just skin deep.
