Our Quest for Fitness Often Parallels Our Walk of Faith
The Bible is the inspired word of God. That inspired word of God tells us that Faith without Works is dead. The same can be said for your quest for fitness. Showing up at the gym is a start, but if it doesn’t become a lifestyle change, it will not yield the results you are looking for. This very much parallels the ongoing Christian walk we take with Jesus.
It takes much more than just going to church on Easter and Christmas. It takes much more than just watching the Sunday morning feel good television pastor that preaches name it, claim it. It takes getting to know the God of the Bible in a new, profound, and personal way by digging deeply into the scriptures.
Transforming your body by adding muscle and losing those unwanted pounds of fat doesn’t come easy. It takes commitment, it takes drive, and it takes the faith that you will achieve the end result of changing your body. The same applies in your walk of faith. Would you have faith or trust in a person that continually let you down, or that you never took the time to get to know or talk to? You cannot have faith in someone you don’t trust and you can’t trust someone you don’t take the time to know. I know you may be thinking that it is easier to get to know a person that you see in the flesh, or a person that talks with you but God has given us a direct line get to know Him by way of the Bible, and he has given us a way to communicate with him via prayer. Take the time to get to know Him, so you can trust Him, so you can grow your faith in him. Ultimately, God will transform your life
If you are struggling with transforming your body, chances are you may need to strengthen your committment in the gym and during meal times, and if you are struggling with transforming your life you may need to strengthen your committment to getting to know God through prayer.
