Pumping Spiritual Iron

16 Mar

Pumping Spiritual Iron…

I’m going to take something you’re so familiar with in regard to the physical realm and apply it to the spiritual realm, and it’s going to be revolutionary. How do you stay in physical shape and grow physically strong? You exercise.

Exercising is using your muscles so they grow stronger and stay strong. Stop exercising, and your muscles will grow weaker. How do you become spiritually strong?

Exercise your spiritual muscles: your faith, love, forgiveness, worship. Something so simple, yet we rarely apply it. We’ll grow stronger by simply exercising. Want to be strong in your faith?

Exercise your faith, apply your faith, challenge your faith; stretch your faith. Want stronger love? Exercise that love. Challenge your love; apply that love, stretch that love; use that love. Want to get stronger in the Word?

Apply the word, use the word, and exercise the word in your life. Want to get stronger in perseverance? Then, exercise perseverance, integrity, prayer, and worship–especially when it’s hard. That’s when your muscles grow.

Exercise mercy, compassion, forgiveness and your spiritual muscles will become strong. You’ll become strong in the Lord. It can only improve when you start to exercise.

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Ephesians 6:10

Look at places where your walk could be stronger and just like different muscles in the body, exercise the areas that need a good workout in your spiritual life.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
