It’s Time To Get Spiritually Fit
Every year when Summer rolls around, everyone usually tries to finally start exercising and work off the pesky winter weight. Well guess what, our Christian life should be no different. We know Jesus is coming back and it’s our time to get ready so we are prepared when the time comes for His second coming. There’s no time to wait, the world needs Jesus, but we can’t help them if we’re not ready ourselves. That’s why we have to start training to become spiritually fit, cause the world needs the prize we’re working for. It’s go time, are you willing to put in the work and become the Christian God calls us to be?
“Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the
prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in
the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not
last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. Therefore I do not run
like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like a boxer beating the air.
No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave so that after I have
preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.”
1 Corinthians 9:24-27 NIV
