Treening, mis kestab

Kogu minu elu, Olen läbinud hooaega, kui ma olen tõesti motiveeritud töötama välja. Kui ma olin keskkoolis Tahtsin olla buff piisavalt muljet tüdrukud (ma ei suutnud). Aastal kuud enne minu pulmas ma üritasin teha minu mesinädalad rannas keha. Nendel päevadel, Ma lihtsalt üritan veenduda, ma elan varem minu kahekümnendates. Minu motivatsioon on aastate jooksul muutunud, aga mida ei ole muutunud, kuidas tujukas need motiivid on.

Võib-olla oled loomulikult motiveeritud töötama välja-Hüüab minu sõbrad, kes postitavad pilte ja videoid oma raviskeemi iga päev. Aga kui sa oled nagu mina, Teie motivatsioon minna üles ja alla nagu laps batuudil. Mis siis, kui tulemusi oma töö läbi kestnud igavesti, kuigi? Kas sa oleksid rohkem motiveeritud?

Raske töö tasub end ära

Ajal taliolümpiamängudel viimasel kuul olin aukartust nagu ma vaatasin välk kiire bobsledders ja auahne lumelaudurid. Olin üllatunud nende sportlikud tipptaset, aga ma olin isegi rohkem muljet, kui ma mõtlesin distsiplineeritud koolitus peab võtnud sinna.

Lõpus iga sündmuse, millal võidukad sportlased seisis võitja poodiumikohta, naeratab oma nägu ja medalid toetub rinnale, nad kasu saada nende väljaõppe. Aga Piibli järgi, seal on hea laadi koolitust, mitte sellepärast, võimlemine on väärtusetu, kuid kuna see on piiratud.

Kui olete kunagi mõelnud, mida Jumal mõtleb treeningu, siin on vastus: Ta arvab, et see on kasulik, kuid piiratud, väärtus. Niisiis, kui sa kasutad, teeme harjutused, ja tõste kaalu, puhata, teades, et see on hea asi, mida teha. Hoiame oma keha heas vormis on kiiduväärt-isegi tark-, kuid see läheb sulle nii palju.

See on see, mida Paulus ütles Timoteosele:

"Aga pole midagi pistmist üleolev ja rumal müüdid. pigem, koolitada ennast jumalakartuses, koolitamiseks keha on piiratud kasu, aga jumalakartuse on kasulik igal viisil, kuna see paljutõotav praeguse elu ja ka tulevases elus." (1 Timothy 4:7-8)

Me võiks kokku võtta Pauli mõtteid trenni niimoodi: Kehaline kasvatus on hea, aga vaimne koolitus on parem. Ja ongi, sest füüsilist jõudu on ajutine, samas jumalakartuse on igavene. Kui Paulus räägib "koolitus jumalakartuse" Ma arvan, et ta tähendab tehes asju, mis sind vaimselt tugevam. See tähendab, kaasates tegevusse, et muuta teid vaga. Võib-olla tõstmiseks meie Piibel on isegi vähem soovitavaks tõste kaalu, kuid tähelepanuta see tähendab, et me laseks rohkem kui hea tervise.

Forever on parem kui hetk

Me kõik teame, et kui midagi kestab kauem see soovitav. Keegi ostab auto teades see saab murda järgmise kuu. Me pigem osta midagi, mis kestab mõnda aega, sest me saada rohkem investeeringuid. Aga kui me seda arvutatakse otsuseid autod, kui palju arvestatakse peaksime olema meie hinged?

Kui tihti sa arvad oma igavikku? Tõde on, peaksime mõtlema selle üle me teeme. Ei ole mingit kahtlust, et me kõik elame igavesti; küsimus on, mis see igavesti on nagu. Nii et me peaks tegema investeeringuid nüüd, teades, et tagajärjed ei lõpe kunagi.

See peaks mõjutama see, mida me keskenduda päevast päeva. Sport on hea, kuid nad ei ole kõik. Teie füüsilist jõudu võib sulle kolledzisse, kuid see ei saa sind Heaven. Sa peaksid hästi hoolitseda oma keha, kuid meil on midagi kaalukama hoolitseda. Kuidas terve on oma hinge?

Kuidas treenida

Jumal annab meile võimaluse ehitada "vaimne lihaste", kui me laseme minna patu ja haarata hoidke Jeesus. Ja siis ta saadab meid jõusaali. Ta lahkelt andnud meile oma sõna, tema inimesed, ja isegi oma kõrva. Nii saab lugeda, osadus, ja palvetada. Sportlased rongi raske, sest nad tahavad olla valmis mängu või mängu enne neid. Nad tahavad, et oleks võimalik konkureerida kõrgel tasemel.

Kõik me silmitsi vaimne testid, uuringutes, ja lahingud igapäevases. Kas olete valmis? Tühikäik ei tööta sportlastele ja see ei tööta kristlased. Eelmise aasta Piibli lugemine ei ole piisav, et säilitada sa sel aastal. Me teha ainult läbi selle maratoni Jumala armust, kuid ta valmistab meid ette rassi kaudu meie vaimne harjutus.

See on kasulik minu jaoks on meeles pidada, et kuigi eeliseid füüsilise ettevalmistuse on piiratud, kasu vaimne ettevalmistus on piiramatu. Neil päevadel, kui ma ei tunne palvetamine või lugedes Jumala Sõna, Ma ei meenutamiseks, et kasu ei ole väike või ajutine. See mitte ainult ei aita mind järgmisel nädalal, see aitab mul järgmises elus. See on kõik, motivatsiooni vajan.

    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. GregBrownvastus

    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, jne. selle asemel, 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. Mul oli vaja seda. 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 “Hea elu”.

    THANK YOU!

  6. MrsRondovastus

    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. tänu Reisi, your timely blogs have been very inspiring, and they constantly point me back to Superstar.

  7. Tee-boyvastus

    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? reis, 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.

    Jumal õnnistagu,
    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 Samuel 16). God says in verse 7, “People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.

    Bless you,

    nokkimine

    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 :)

  11. Liamvastus

    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. Brianvastus

    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. tänu Reisi

  13. Njokivastus

    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 või 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!
    Tänu Reisi Lee, for letting God work through youImma read the Word more! :)

  14. Ngosavastus

    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!!
