EXERCISE Your FAITH!
EXERCISE is a part of life. There are business that cater to exercising anytime, anyday & almost anywhere.
We are a society that is obsessed with EXERCISE.
But did you know that EXERCISE is vital to maintaining a STRONG faith!
But reject profane and old wives' fables, and EXERCISE yourself toward GODLINESS. For bodily exercise profits a little, but GODLINESS is profitable for ALL THINGS (Say that: but godliness is profitable for ALL things! Why?), having promise of the life that now is and of that which is to come.
1 Timothy 4:7, 8 (NKJV)
(NCV) but train yourself to serve God. Training your body helps you in some ways, but serving God helps you in every way…
(MSG) Exercise daily in God—no spiritual flabbiness, please! Workouts in the gymnasium are useful, but a disciplined life in God is far more so, making you fit both today and forever.
Why are we to exercise ourselves toward Godliness? Godliness is profitable for ALL THINGS, serving God in this "training program" will help you in every way! It is profitable both in this life and in the life to come, physically and spiritually, financially, relationally. It is profitable in every area of life.
Faith is believing with the heart and acting on what we believe. Anytime faith is required action is necessary! Act in FAITH!
