SPIRITUALITY & PHYSICAL TRAINING
They apostle Paul, one of the most radical followers of Jesus Christ makes a bold and yet enlightening statement in 1 Timothy 4:8 when he states that “while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come”
Notice how he prioritizes spiritual training but then he goes on to address the physical aspect of life. Many Christians and churches today fail to mention the importance of physical training because they consider it to be vein, focusing only on an aesthetics destination rather than it being a way for people to gain mental clarity and therefore having a clear mind to be able to acknowledge God.
Remember when Saul encounters God on his way to Damascus Acts 9:1-9 Gods light blinds him and knocks him off a horse, all these things are happing in Saul’s physical being. God could have brought such conviction to his heart and turned him right around but it’s interesting that he chooses to inflict physical pain before he can become the man the writes half of the bible and spreads the gospel throughout they entire world. Muscles cannot be built instantly; there has to be training over a period of time. Likewise, godliness doesn’t come instantly. Many people wait until they are already in trouble to try to flex their spiritual muscles. That’s like a couch potato hoping to live a healthy existence simply by praying and hoping for the best.
