SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 03/20/15- “In Shape Physically VS Cross Fit Spiritually!”
(1 Timothy 4:8)
Premise Question: Being “in shape” physically versus being in “cross fit” shape spiritually, which is most important for living?
“Physical training is good, but training for godliness is much better, promising benefits in this life and in the life to come.” (1 Timothy 4:8 NLT)
Although, while daily working out one’s physical body, with due diligence, in order to stay in shape and be physically fit, is commendable; it doesn’t even begin to hold the light of a single lit candle, when compared to the immeasurably preferred, being much superior, longer lasting, with greater value, and with many more impactive results and benefits, to that, of a daily routine that is diligently deliberate, with specific exercises and instruction in righteousness, for a total and necessary, spiritual transformation within us, not only for today, but for a far reaching, into the future and even infinitely beyond, invaluable greater purpose. (1 Timothy 4:8 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Being physically fit definitely has some significant value for being able to perform and function in everyday life, but, being spiritually fit is significantly much more important, as it is absolutely beyond invaluable, not only for everyday life, in every way possible or imaginable, but for the long haul, as well; reaching beyond the present day existence and into an infinite future, without end. So, we ought not to neglect entirely, a daily workout routine for our physical bodies, but that definitely should not be our primary focus, as the physical is only temporal; but we ought to choose the more excellent, wise and prudent way, of growing, developing and staying
“in shape” spiritually, by being in “cross fit” shape. Check out (Jude 1:20) Blessings…
