Trening koji traje

Kroz moj život, Ja sam prošla sezona kada sam bio jako motivirani da rade. Kad sam bio u srednjoj školi samo sam htio biti dovoljno da impresionirati djevojke koža (nisam uspio). U mjesecima prije moje vjenčanje sam pokušavao raditi na moj medeni tijelo na plaži. Ovih dana, Samo pokušavam biti sigurni živim prošlost mojim dvadesetima. Moji motivi su se promijenile tijekom godina, ali ono što se nije promijenilo je način promjenjiv ti motivi.

Možda ste, naravno, motivirani za rad izvan kriknuti da mojim prijateljima koji objavljuju slike i video njihovog odgajanje svaki dan. Ali, ako ste poput mene, Vaši motivi ići gore i dolje kao klinac na trampolinu. Što ako su rezultati vašeg rada iz trajao zauvijek, iako? Želite li biti više motivirani?

Tvrdi rad isplati

Tijekom Zimske olimpijske igre prošlog mjeseca bio sam u strahopoštovanje kao što sam gledao munjevitu bobsledders i visoko lete bordere. Bio sam impresioniran njihovom športske izvrsnosti, ali sam bio još više impresioniran kada sam razmišljao o discipliniranog treninga mora uzeti da se tamo.

Na kraju svakog događaja kada su pobjednički sportaši stajao na pobjedničkom postolja, s osmjesi na njihovim licima i medalje odmara na svojim grudima, su žetva prednostima njihove obuke. Ali prema Bibliji, postoji superiorna vrsta treninga a ne zato što fizički trening je bezvrijedan, nego zato što je ograničen.

Ako ste ikada pitali što Bog misli o svojim treninga, Ovdje je odgovor: On misli da je korisno, ali ograničeno, vrijednost. Dakle, dok radite, radi bušilice, i dizanje utega, ostatak u spoznaji da je to dobra stvar za napraviti. Imajući vaše tijelo u dobroj formi za pohvalu, čak i mudro, ali ona će samo da bi vas do sada.

To je ono što je apostol Pavao rekao Timoteju:

"No, nemaju nikakve veze s irreverent i glupim mitovima. radije, vlak se u pobožnosti, za obuku tijelu ima ograničen korist, ali pobožnost je koristan u svakom pogledu, jer joj je obećan sadašnjem životu i za život doći." (1 Timothy 4:7-8)

Mogli bismo sumirati Pavlove misli na rad ovako: Fizički trening je dobar, ali duhovni trening je bolji. A to je zato što je fizička snaga je privremeno, a pobožnost je vječna. Kad Pavao govori o "osposobljavanje za pobožnosti" Mislim da znači raditi stvari koje vas čine duhovno jači. To znači sudjelovanje u aktivnostima koje vas čine više pobožnog. Možda je podizanje naše Biblija je još manje poželjno od podizanja težine, ali to zanemarivanje znači da smo propustili više od dobrog zdravlja.

Zauvijek je bolje od A Moment

Svi znamo da kada nešto traje duže to je više poželjno. Nitko ne kupuje auto znajući da će razbiti sljedećeg mjeseca. Mi bi radije kupiti nešto što traje neko vrijeme, jer ćemo dobiti više od ulaganja. Ali, ako smo tako obračunava s odlukama o automobilima, koliko više izračunali smo trebali biti oko naših duša?

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 što je to zauvijek će biti kao. Tako smo trebali ulagati sada, znajući da su posljedice nikada neće završiti.

To bi trebalo utjecati na ono što se fokusiramo na iz dana u dan. Sportski su dobri, no to nije sve. Vaš fizička snaga može dobiti u koledžu, ali to vas neće doći u nebo. Te bi trebao uzeti dobru brigu o vašem tijelu, ali imamo nešto važniji da se brine za. Kako zdrava je tvoja duša?

Kako Za Vlak

Bog nam omogućuje izgraditi "duhovno mišića" kad smo pustiti grijeha i zgrabite držite Isusa. A onda nas šalje u teretanu. On nam je ljubazno dao svoju riječ, njegovi ljudi, pa čak i njegova uha. Tako ćemo čitati, stipendija, i moli. Sportaši treniraju teško, jer oni žele biti spremni za igru ​​ili utakmice ispred njih. Oni žele biti u mogućnosti da se natječu na visokoj razini.

Svatko od nas će se suočiti duhovne testove, suđenja, i bitke svakodnevno. Jeste li spremni? Kotrljanje ne radi za sportaše i to neće raditi za kršćane. Prošlogodišnji čitanje Biblije nije dovoljno da vas održi u ovoj godini. Mi samo ću to učiniti putem ovog maratona Božjom milošću, ali on nas priprema za utrku kroz naše duhovne vježbe.

To je korisno za mene zapamtiti da, iako se koristi od tjelovježbe ograničena, prednosti duhovnog treninga su neograničene. Na one dane kad se ne osjećam kao moli ili čita Božju Riječ, Mogu se podsjetiti da je korist nije mali ili privremeni. To ne samo da će mi pomoći sljedeći tjedan, to će mi pomoći u budućem životu. To je sve motivacija mi treba.

    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.

    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, 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 “Dobar život”.

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

    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.

    Bog blagoslovio,

    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,

    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. Thanks 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!
    Thanks Trip Lee, for letting God work through youImma read the Word more! :)

    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!!
