Read 1 Corinthians 9:25-27
27 I discipline my body like an athlete, training it to do what it should. Otherwise, I fear that after preaching to others I myself might be disqualified. - 1 Corinthians 9:27 NLT
Hello family, As we grow in our walk with Christ we will experience growing pains. There will be some junk in out life that comes out easy but others that go kicking and screaming. And they may even try and creep back in.
That is why we discipline our selves to the word of God. Old habits die hard! Killing this sinful nature is a process. A process in which God uses our mess ups to show out the areas where we are weak at. He does this not to poke fun but to motivate us strengthen theses areas.
God will give us the strength, the holy Spirit will give us the action to take but we have to act on it! Unlike the training of the athletes that ends when they end there careers. Our training will continue as long as we are drawing breath. Each day we are growing stronger and closer to God. Only when He calls us home will our training be done.
Don’t grow weary keep running keep digging, keep walking in the footprints of christ. this road ain’t easy but it’s worth it!
Much Love & God Bless
