Exercise yourself towards godliness. I Timothy 4:7
As we exercise on a regular basis (jog, walk, swim, aerobic, etc.) the body grows in strength. We become healthier. When as individual enters a marathon, there is a level of fitness required to complete the task. To achieve that level of fitness requires dedicated training.
In I Timothy 4, Paul talks to Timothy about “Spiritual Fitness”. He stated don’t take a relaxed approach to living a life honoring God. Paul, wrote exercise (train) yourself towards godliness. In this very hour, the false teachings are going forth; often time’s people get caught up.
We are to be dedicated to God and prepared for His service. Romans 12: 1-2, I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Why not seek godliness? Why not turn your devotion to the Savior? Do you often feel drained or lifeless? Readiness is the key to make this journey we are on right now because; satan and all his imps are busy. Time is out for waiting until the last minute to make preparation. While you have ample time, dig in, whatever it takes to be Spiritually Fit, get busy.
