Years ago this was a fitness nation, from Jane Fonda workouts to people spending lots of money to workout at gyms. We are all trying to get in shape. So when was the last time you decided to get your body in spiritual shape? To be champion for Christ, the bible tells us in Hebrews 12:1“LET US LAY ASIDE EVERY WEIGHT AND SIN THAT EASILY BESET US. ” What are some things that a champion must lay a side? Colossians 3:8-9 tells us ANGER,WRATH,MALICE,AND BLASPHEMY ALONG FILTHY COMMUNICATION OUT OF THE MOUTH.
What keeps you from making it to the finish line? What has gotten in your way of doing what God would have you to do? Paul tells us in 2 Timothy 2:19 “LET EVERYONE THAT NAMETH THE NAME OF CHRIST DEPART FROM INIQUITY. ” So to be a champion for Christ you have to keep your eyes on the prize. Who is the author and finisher of your faith?
