Treninga koji traje

Kroz moj život, Ja sam prošao kroz godišnja doba kada sam zaista motiviran za rad od. Kad sam bio u srednjoj školi, samo sam htio da bude dovoljno da impresionira devojke buff (nisam uspio). U mjesecima prije mog vjenčanja Pokušavao sam da radim na medeni mjesec plaži tijelo. Ovih dana, Ja samo pokušavam da budem siguran da živim pored mog dvadesetim. Moja motivacija su se promijenile tijekom godina, ali ono što se nije promijenila je kako prevrtljiva te motivi.

Možda si prirodno motivirani za rad izvan pozdrav mojim prijateljima koji postavljaju slike i video snimke njihovih režima trening svaki dan. Ali, ako ste poput mene, vaša motivacija ići gore i dolje kao klinac na trampolinu. Šta ako su rezultati vašeg rada od trajao zauvijek, iako? Da li biste bili više motivirani?

Naporan rad se isplati

Tokom posljednjih mjesec dana Zimskih olimpijskih igara bio sam u strahopoštovanje dok sam gledao munja brz bobsledders i highflying snowboardera. Bio sam impresioniran njihovim atletskim izvrsnosti, ali ja sam bio još više impresioniran kada sam razmišljao o disciplinovani trening mora su se do tamo.

Na kraju svakog događaja, kada je pobjednik sportisti stajao na podijuma pobednički, sa osmehom na licu i medalje odmara na svojim grudima, oni su žanje koristi njihove obuke. Međutim, prema Bibliji, postoji superiorna vrsta obuke-ne zato što fizički trening je bezvrijedan, već zato što je ograničen.

Ako ste se ikada zapitali šta Bog misli o svojim treninzima, evo odgovor: On smatra da je korisno, ali ograničena, vrijednost. Dakle, dok trčite, radi bušilice, i dizanje tegova, počiva u saznanju da je to dobra stvar. Imajući vaše tijelo u dobroj formi je za pohvalu, čak i mudro-ali samo će vam se do sada.

To je ono što je Apostol Pavle je rekao da Timothy:

"Ali, nemaju nikakve veze s britkim i blesavo mitova. radije, trenira se u pobožnosti, za obuku tijelo ima ograničen korist, ali pobožnost je korisna u svakom pogledu, jer drži obećanje za sadašnji život i za život da dođe." (1 Timothy 4:7-8)

Mogli bismo sumirati Paul misli da radi ovako: Fizički trening je dobro, ali duhovni trening je bolji. A to je zato što fizička snaga je privremeno, dok pobožnost je večna. Kada Paul govori o "trening za pobožnost" Mislim da je on znači raditi stvari koje vas duhovno jači. To znači da se bave aktivnostima koje vas više božji. Možda je podizanje naše Biblija je još manje poželjno od podizanja mase, ali zanemarujući to znači da propustite više nego dobro zdravlje.

Forever je bolje od A Moment

Svi znamo da kada se nešto duže traje to je više poželjno. Niko ne kupuje auto znajući da će slomiti sljedećeg mjeseca. Mi radije kupiti nešto što traje neko vrijeme, jer ćemo dobiti više od investicije. Ali, ako ćemo tako obračunava sa odlukama o automobilima, koliko izračunava bi trebalo da bude oko naše duše?

Koliko često mislite o svojoj vječnosti? Istina je, trebamo razmišljati o tome više nego mi. Nema sumnje da su svi od nas će živjeti zauvijek; pitanje je šta da zauvijek će biti kao. Tako da bi sada trebalo napraviti ulaganja, znajući da su posljedice nikada neće završiti.

Ovo bi trebalo utjecati na ono što se fokusiramo na iz dana u dan. Sportski su dobri, ali oni nisu sve. Vaš fizičku snagu možete dobiti u koledž, ali to vas neće ući u raj. Trebalo bi da se dobro brinuti o svom telu, ali imamo nešto teža za brigu o. Kako zdravo je tvoja duša?

Kako Treniraj

Bog nam omogućava da gradimo "duhovni mišića" kad pusti Sin i uzmi držite Isusa. I onda je on nas šalje u teretanu. On nas milostivo dao riječ, svoj narod, pa čak i uhu. Dakle, da pročita, stipendija, i moli. Sportaši treniraju teško jer žele da budu spremni za igru ​​ili se utakmici pred njima. Oni žele biti u mogućnosti da se natječu na visokom nivou.

Svi od nas će se suočiti duhovne testove, suđenja, i bitke svakodnevni. Da li ste spremni? Coasting ne radi za sportaše i to neće raditi za hrišćane. Prošle godine je Biblija čitanje nije dovoljno da vas održati u ovoj godini. Mi ćemo učiniti samo kroz ovaj maraton Božjom milošću, ali nam je priprema za trku kroz naše duhovne vježbe.

To je korisno za mene na umu da, dok su ograničene prednosti fizičkog treninga, prednosti duhovnog treninga su neograničene. Tih dana kad mi se ne moli ili čitajući Božju Riječ, Mogu se podsjetiti da korist nije mala ili privremeni. To ne samo da će mi pomoći naredne sedmice, to će mi pomoći u narednom životu. To je sve motivacija mi je potrebno.

    Trip thank you for this. For the past week I’ve been fearing death. I don’t know why but I do. I really needed to be reminded that heaven is the best thing ever and this earth won’t get me anything.

  2. GregBrownodgovor

    Thanks for this bit of encouragement! It is easy for some of us to become obsessed with eating healthy and exercising. But do you spend more time planning your meals and at the gym, than in times of prayer and study of the Word? It’s easy to have your priorities messed up, even on the mission field.

    Blessings in Christ to all!

    I agree. The spiritual fitness/exercise is FAR more important than any physical fitness/exercise, but I ALSO believe that both can be done at the same time as well. I know there is a fine line between working out for yourself and working out for God, but there is a difference (believe it or not). Working out for God, physically, includes the spiritual element. For instance, when you have a workout partner, you two talk periodically when you workout together. Imagine if, when you two talk, it isn’t about a pump, your muscles, itd. umjesto toga, when you talk, speak from your heart, and have fellowship with one another in Christ. The physical working out may be a common interest for those in the gym, but if you add the spiritual aspect, your fitness with go to an unearthly level (right where we are supposed to be), spreading the love of Christ.

    It amazes me how The Lord speaks in so many different ways. I was wrestling with the thought ofI should work out todaybut was feeling like I fail at this area over and over again and somewhat feel it can be wasted time if it’s not something continuous in my life. Reading this blog was a reminder from God that He>I and when I focus on Him and train spiritually, I feel so much better and trust that it’s not time wasted. I think staying healthy is important but I know that digging into His word and seeking him is well worth every second of our life. Time with God is never wasted. Thanks for being obedient to what Christ has called you to share. I needed this. God bless You and your family Trip!

    Man this is awesome stuff, I love what you stand for. I love learning from your teachings in your music and now your book “The Good Life”.

    THANK YOU!

    This was awesome. The two things I hope to gain and retain this year and yet I struggle with the one that is far more important than the other. zahvaljujući Trip, your timely blogs have been very inspiring, and they constantly point me back to Superstar.

  7. Tee-boyodgovor

    Bro this is what I needed. I’ve been struggling and fighting with the spirit for the last couple of days. Just forgot to pray, read my bible, and even go to church. This is a wake up call. From now on I’m a changed man in Christ. I even thought God will n longer listen to me because of my ungodly life. Jesus died on the cross for me and I know I’m always welcome in his presence and he is just and faithful to forgive me from my sins.
    Bro I thank God for your life and the great work he he’s doing through you. God bless you for accepting his works.
    Stay blessed my brother.

    I think this is very relevant in our culture today. How often do you see people at the gym for hours? putovanje, I work at the YMCA and I see the same people day in and day out for at least an hour of working out, but generally more than that. And it gets you thinking, there’s probably a lot of Christians that come into my Y (We’re the largest in Indiana), so how many of them are spending 1-2 hours a day engaging themselves in spiritual activity? This is relevant to me because it’s the call out I needed to get back in shape physically and spiritually. Thank you brother.

    nazdravlje,
    Logan Long

    Hey,

    This is a word-for-a-season. In a culture there are so many social pressures to look good and for guys to be fit and ‘buff’, we can get so caught up in what we think we should be like, in what others tell us we need to look like.

    Saying that God thinks that workouts have limited value is spot on, compared to the eternity we can spend with God.

    This reminds me of David’s story when he is anointed king by Samuel 1 Samuilo 16). God says in verse 7, “People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.

    Bless you,

    Josh

    Really encouraging Trip! Anything that gets me closer to God truly brings me happiness and strengthen me! So thank you man. I really appreciate you. I’ll keep praying for you :)

    Trip I am big into working out, but I have to remind myself to read this post every once in a while. Helps keep me focused on what really matters

  12. Brianodgovor

    Wow as a fellow blogger I love the content of this. I am a workout buff but it comes easier than sometimes finding the time to pick up my Word daily. I then wonder why I don’t stand up to trials like I should. Awesome reminder. zahvaljujući Trip

  13. Njokiodgovor

    This is really encouraging and it has been something that’s been on my mind. I don’t read my Bible everyday, in fact, I could go for 2 ili 3 days without getting in touch with God’s Wordbut now I know that I’m denying myself eternal benefits. It means so much to me that what I read today will help me next week or next month. I can’t rely on what I did last year, or last weekI’m working out for my eternity!!
    Godliness has value for ALL THINGS holding promise for both the present life and the life to come!
    Zahvaljujući Trip Lee, for letting God work through youImma read the Word more! :)

  14. Ngosaodgovor

    that was awesome message Trip, I have always wondered whether working out is wrong or not or simply unnecessary. Your analysis clears the air on that one. Thanx, keep BRAGING BRO!!
