The heavyweight world champion was in training and adapted to rigid rules. All fighters know the need to discipline their bodies before they enter the ring. They follow a strict diet, exercise and rest in preparation for a big match. Temptations arise; friends coax them to bend the rules. If they are smart, they’ll refuse. “No; I’m in training!”
“All scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work (2 Timothy 3:16-17 NAS).” Before I find myself on the ropes, training in righteousness is essential. God’s word prepares me for His work and witness!
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
