The APFT means a lot because as Soldiers we realize that a great deal depends on us being physically fit. We could be sent anywhere in the world. We may have to carry the weight of an injured comrade. We may be required to wear heavy protective equipment. We do not want to be unable to carry our own weight, and effectively contribute to what is taking place around us.
Physical fitness is great, but what about our spiritual fitness? How seriously do we take that?
What if God were to give us an Almighty’s Spiritual Fitness Test (ASFT) – how would you do? If God were to ask you the following questions what would be your response?
Have you prayed this morning, thanking me for life and asking me for direction today?
Have you read my regulations on how you should care for this vehicle that moves your vital organs around and stores the four pounds of fat in your head (your brain) that controls your bodily functions?
Have you showed those who care for you that you appreciate them by telling them thank you or letting them know that you love them?
Have you gotten stronger since last year or is your faith out of shape?
As important as an APFT is an ASFT is even more important. So if you were to take one right now how would you do?
We need to maintain a relationship with God because we will have some trials in life that will damage us if our faith is out of shape!
