The Father’s Joy: The Personal Trainer
“But that is exactly what we are, each of us a temple in whom God lives. God himself put it this way: “I’ll live in them, move into them; I’ll be their God and they’ll be my people.
So leave the corruption and compromise; leave it for good,” says God.
With promises like this to pull us on, dear friends, let’s make a clean break with everything that defiles or distracts us, both within and without. Let’s make our entire lives fit and holy temples for the worship of God.”
2 Corinthians 6:16-17; 7:1 MSG
Are you fit? Do you live a healthy lifestyle? Exercise? Eat right foods?
To help you on your quest of “Physical Fitdom” the fitbit will monitor your every move, or lack of, to spur you onto greater success. The fitbit, a cordless activity-and-sleep tracker, is worn on your wrist with these super-duper features: waterproof, memory function, step counter, distance tracker, wireless synchronization to mobile, wireless synchronization to PC and Mac, built‑in accelerometer, burned calorie indicator and sleep cycle analysis.
Wow! Everything to help keep you on-track to super health! Now, if only the fitbit would actually DO the exercise, the walking, the running, and getting the proper sleep.
That’s the challenge. To actually DO something. See, the fitbit only monitors real-time…revealing your lifestyle. You can’t fool the fitbit.
And here’s the point…you can’t fool God either. He lives IN us. He moves IN us. He doesn’t only keep track of our actions…no, He does waaaaaay more! He IS our internal power to do the next right thing! To leave corruption and compromise for good.
He is the One that pulls us on, that empowers us to make a clean break with everything that defiles or distracts us. God doesn’t just show us a real-time readout of our actions, or lack of them. He IS our power to conquer those habits that have beleaguered us for years. He not only makes us fit for the “here and now” but for the “then and there,” as well.
Hallelujah! How could we NOT make our entire lives FIT and holy temples for the worship of God!
The fitbit might be all the rage right now…BUT GOD, has been and always will be, THEE only Personal Power and Fitness Trainer that will live and move in us…so we can be fit for all of eternity!
That’s a God-Promise! Sign me up! I want to be REALLY fit!
