“SPIRITUAL WORKOUT”

“The True Workout That Gets The Real Flabbiness Out”
Wondering in your life how to get that fat off your spiritual body?
Well, EXERCISE DAILY in GOD....not just when you feel like it. No spiritual flabbiness please!

So, when you are craving something of the flesh, remember, workouts in the gymnasium are useful, but a Disciplined Life in God is far more useful, making you fit both today and forever, not by believing the latest craze and fad for spiritual dieting and exercise that will leave you flabby. So, perk up and smile. You can count on God to give you the most useful and satisfying workout to last an eternity.

Oh! Lets talk about that refrigerator. What has been been collecting bacteria and rotting your spriritual life? Has bitterness, unforgiveness, fear, jealousy, doubt, or possibly past hurts been lurking in the depths of your spiritual frig? It'll start getting smelly and rotten if such attitudes reside there for long. We all have sinned and fallen short, but we need to die to those attitudes and by the power of the Holy Spirit, fill that refrigerator with the fruit of the spirit instead so the aroma of Christ will be attractive and pleasant and cause all men to taste and see that the Lord is good. Set an example for His kingdom's sake.

So, next time when you have the urge to be lukewarm in your faith or carry bacterial attitudes, may you seek to take the time to clean out that refrigerator of your spiritual life and keep only what’s good and throw out anything tainted with evil. Only Christ can provide the cleaning agent needed to do the job correctly and completely through His blood that was shed for you and me. May He cleanse your spiritual frig from all unrighteousness and make you shine with His glory once again.

Learn to appreciate and give dignity to your body, not abusing it. If you choose this new diet of TRUTH, then you, by choosing to EXERCISE DAILY in GOD will be woven into a tapestry of love, in touch with everything there is to know of GOD. Then you will have a mind confident and at rest, focused on CHRIST.

Now do what you have been taught. You are deeply rooted in Him. You know the way around....school’s out; quit studying the “how to’s” and start living it the way Jesus your “Personal Spiritual Trainer” has instructed you to do.

AND....
Let your living spill over into...
THANKSGIVING!!!
