1 Timothy 4:7-10
7 Do not waste time arguing over godless ideas and old wives’ tales. Spend your time and energy in training yourself for spiritual fitness. 8 Physical exercise has some value, but spiritual exercise is much more important, for it promises a reward in both this life and the next. 9 This is true, and everyone should accept it. 10 We work hard and suffer much in order that people will believe the truth, for our hope is in the living God, who is the Savior of all people, and particularly of those who believe.
Holy Bible, New Living Translation, (Wheaton, IL: Tyndale House Publishers, Inc.) 1996.

It seems that physical fitness is the “in” thing these days. It is good for your health to be physically fit, but the Word of God tells us it is more important to be spiritually fit. And just as physical fitness takes time and work, so does your spiritual fitness. It will not happen without time and work. There are three steps to getting spiritually fit and keeping yourself there. 1.) Take time to be with God every day. Looking at the life of Jesus, He often withdrew and prayed. In fact, He did not make a move without knowing what the Father wanted Him to do. How can we, who only have a small measure of His Spirit in us expect to do any less. And yet we do. We need God’s constant direction and we can only know what it is by spending time in His Word and talking to Him. 2.) Give a tithe every week. Matthew 6:21 states, “Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” If everything is God’s and He ask us to return 10% to Him, the rest is under our stewardship. Put God first with your money and He will take care of all the rest. 3.) Get together with other believers regularly. We should get into the habit of meeting together to encourage each other. It is more difficult to serve God outside of His body. Do these three things and you will become spiritually fit and then your treasure will be in heaven and not in this world.

Have a God Day!
