THE FAITH & FITNESS CONNECTION
Perhaps you’ve never really considered the connection between your fitness & your faith. Maybe you’re thinking “What do these two things have to do with one another?” If that is the case, allow me to pose another question to you…WHAT IF YOU HAD A REASON (other than a number on a scale or a tag in your pants) TO BE HEALTHY & FIT? WHAT IF YOU KNEW THAT YOU HAD A PURPOSE & WERE BEING CALLED TO DO BIG THINGS WITH YOUR LIFE? Well…Guess what? YOU DO HAVE A PURPOSE!!!!!
Philippians 2:13 (NIV)
“For it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.”
Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Maybe You are still unaware of your purpose in life, but let me assure you…you absolutely have one, we all do! God has a plan for you, and it is going to be wild and amazing! Don’t you want to be ready when God chooses to reveal his plan for you? This is why the FAITH & FITNESS connection is so important.
1 Corinthians 6:19 says “Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own.” We are charged with the responsibility of taking care of our “temples”. By taking care of our health, we are showing God that we respect His creation, and we want to be “ready” for whatever He may call us to do! In the next few weeks I will break down in more detail all the ways FAITH & FITNESS are connected, and how a biblical perspective may change the way you feel about your fitness journey!
