Physical and Spiritual Fitness By Dr. Bob Snyder
Physical and Spiritual Fitness Strengthens You
I enjoy the disciplines of fitness and physical exercise because it fits my “to-do list” mentality. Yet, when I apply this same mentality to my spiritual life I often fall short. For instance, reading through my Bible in a year does not necessarily produce growth. Yielding to the work of God within me, however, does.
The disciplines that facilitate my soul’s health are often hard for me. Disciplines such as:
Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord!
– Psalm 27:14 ESV
My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.
~ John 10:27 ESV
Emptying Me of Myself
I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.
~ Galatians 2:20 ESV
These internal disciplines are not easy.
