Under Gods Command

1 Timothy 4:7-10 Have nothing to do with godless myths and old wives’ tales’ rather, train yourself to be godly.  For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things holding promise for both the present life and the life to come. This is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance. That is why we labor and strive, because we have put our hope in the living God who is the Savior of all people and especially of those who believe.  

 Are you in shape both physically and spiritually? In our society, much emphasis is placed on physical fitness, but spiritual health (godliness) is even more important. Our physical health is susceptible to disease and injury, but faith can sustain us through any  tragedy. To train ourselves to be godly, we must develop our faith by using our God-given abilities in the service of the church (see 4:14–16).

Lets Bring it Home: Are you developing your spiritual muscles? Christ is the Savior for all, but his salvation becomes effective only for those who trust him. How much do we trust him?  What happens when we are squeeze by the world?  What comes out, is it worldly or Spiritual Actions that come out?  Do we immediately lead toward our own understanding until it goes wrong, then come back to Jesus.  If that is the case, we need to work out more with the Lord.
