It’s the 100-meter dash of the Olympic final. It’s a race for the gold; the moment the finalists have spent their lives training for. They are all placed at the line, feet set and digging into the track. Pulses are sure to be racing. The gun cracks, and the sprint begins.
Imagine the adrenaline and the heart rates of the athletes. They are physically agile, and have strength and health. Then compare this to that of someone who is sick and bedridden. It is sure to be a big difference, and most definitely affects how much one or the other is capable to accomplish physically.
We each have spiritual pulses as well. How much you care for and exercise your spiritual walk with God will determine what you can accomplish for His kingdom.
As Christians, there is no greater achievement than to bring others to the knowledge, truth and love of Jesus Christ—but we cannot do this if we are spiritually weak. You can’t give away what you don’t have! If you don’t have passion for the things of God, then you won’t be able to give that to others.
When was the last time you checked your spiritual health? It’s time to check your pulse. Maybe it’s been a long time, but it’s never too late to start exercising! Your spiritual agility, strength and health will increase more and more as you seek after God with your whole heart.
Passion for Him may seem like a distant memory, or something you’ve never truly known. Start out today doing something small to connect with God and over time you will develop spiritual strength and renewed life in Him!
“…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.” 1 Timothy 4:7-8
