It is a very well-known fact that an individual should exercise or undergo some workout programs to keep our bodies healthy. Search around the internet and you will find a lot of articles stating the benefits of regular exercise. It is a good habit. Actually, ourselves are the ones responsible with our own health.
A lot of people are willing to spend an enormous amount of money just to go to the gym. Others even own those running shoes and workout clothes that really amount to thousands. Some aren’t hesitant to try out the slimming pills out there in the market that promises effective results. There’s nothing really wrong about all of these. Investing on your health can go a long way later in your life.
What I am saying is just this: You allot time to go the gym at least thrice a week, but do you intend at least one day to go to church? You bought a portable music player to pump up your running, but do you own a Bible? You risk your current health condition in exchange of the guaranteeing results of energy drinks, but have you ever went out your way to accept Christ in your life?
The Word is freely given to us. Even if you don’t deserve it, you have been saved by grace. (Ephesians 2:8) God stays true to His promises.
Yes, we are to take care of this temporary form we are currently in. We are to stay in this stop-over until we are called Home. But as we do that, let us not forget that we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them (Ephesians 2:10).
If you can finish an hour of a workout program, what is a 10-minute devotion to the Lord every morning? 🙂
