He Workout e Tolonga

I roto i toku ora, Kua haere ahau i roto i nga wa, ina kua ue'i tino ahau ki te mahi i roto i. I ahau i roto i te kura teitei ahau hiahia noa ki te kia buff nui ki te maongo kotiro (i taka ahau). I roto i nga marama i te aroaro o toku marena i tamata ahau ki te mahi i runga i toku tinana tātahi taime. ēnei ra, tamata noa ahau ki te kia ora ahau mua oku pia ma. kua puta ke toku manawa i runga i te tau, engari te mea e kore i puta ke he pehea tauiui noa e te hunga manawa.

Pea koe fakanatula hihiri ki te mahi i roto i-hamama i roto i ki oku hoa e whakairi pics me ngā ataata o ratou talena whakangungu i ia ra koutou. Otiia, ki te kei rite ahau koutou, haere ki runga a ki raro koutou manawa, ano he kuao koati i runga i te papa hūpekepeke. He aha te mea te hua i to koutou mahi i roto i roa ake, ahakoa?

I roto i te Winter Olympics marama whakamutunga ko ahau wehi i rite ahau i tiaki ai uira bobsledders tere, me te highflying snowboarders. I putapû ahau e ratou kairangi sipoti, engari ko ahau noa atu faahiahia no ahau whakaaro e pā ana ki te whakangungu pakia me kua riro te reira ki te tiki i reira.

I te mutunga o ia hui, no te tu o nga kaitäkaro wikitoria i runga i podiums o te toa, me ataata i runga i o ratou mata me te mētara takoto i runga i o ratou uma, i te kokoti e ratou nga hua o to ratou whakangungu. Otiia rite ki te Bibilia, i reira te he ahua pai o te whakangungu-kore no te mea he horihori whakangungu tinana, engari no te mea te iti te reira.

Ki te kua ake miharo koutou ta te Atua whakaaro e pā ana ki o koutou workouts, i konei te te whakahoki: mahara ai ia nana te reira painga, engari iti, uara. Na ia e rere koutou, mahi akoako, me te ara pauna, okioki i te matauranga e te reira te mea pai ki te mahi. E rongoa nei i to koutou tinana i roto i te āhua pai he mea whai whakapainga-ara whakaaro nui-engari te haere anake te reira ki te tiki koe i matara.

Ko te kupu tenei mea te Aposetolo Paulo ia Timoteo:

"Engari kahore ki te mahi ki te tito tapukore, me te heahea. Engari, whakangungu ia koe i roto i te karakia, mo te whakangungu o te tinana e he iti painga, engari he painga i roto i nga ara te karakia pai, mai mau te reira whakaaria mai mo te ora hakari, me te hoki mo te ora ki te haere mai." (1 Timothy 4:7-8)

taea e tatou huihuia ake whakaaro a Paora i runga i te mahi i roto i rite tenei: He pai te whakangungu tinana, engari whakangungu fakalaumālié he pai. Na e te no te mea he poto te kaha tinana, i te mea kei tonu te karakia. A, no te kōrero Paulo e pā ana ki "whakangungu mō te karakia" whakaaro ahau te tikanga ia mahi i nga mea e meinga koutou kaha fakalaumālie. tikanga te reira i te whakawhitiwhiti i roto i nga mahi e hanga e koe atu tapu. ara pea ko noa iti minaminatia i te ara i te taimaha to tatou Bibilia, engari e kapea reira tikanga mahue tatou i roto i runga i neke atu i te hauora pai.

Ake ake He pai atu i te Moment

e matau ana tatou katoa e ka pumau te tahi mea roa te reira atu e minaminatia. Kahore he tangata e hokona te motokā i mohio ka wahia te reira iho te marama e whai ake nei. Hiahia matou kaua te hoko te tahi mea e pumau te ia, no te mea ka whiwhi tatou ake i roto i te haumi. Otiia ki te e pena tatou tatau ki ngā whakataunga e pā ana ki ngā waka, tera noa ake tatau totonu ke tau e pā ana ki to tatou varua?

Kia pehea te maha koutou e whakaaro e pā ana ki to koutou mure ore? Ko te pono ko te, ti'a ia tatou ia feruri e pā ana ki reira, nui atu i te mahi matou. He te kahore uiraa e, e ora katoa o tatou ake ake; te pātai ko te aha e ake ka rite. Na kia hanga e matou haumi i teie nei, mohio e kore e mutu te mau hopearaa.

Me pānga tenei ta arotahi tatou i runga i i ra ki te ra. He pai Sports, heoi kihai ratou kei nga mea katoa. kia whiwhi koe tou kaha tinana ki te kāreti, otiia e kore e whiwhi i te reira koutou ki te rangi. Me tango e koe te tiaki pai o koutou tinana, engari to tatou te tahi mea rarahi ki te tiaki hoki. Kia pehea te hauora ko koutou wairua?

Pehea Hei Whakatupuria

Te Atua āhei tatou ki te hanga "uaua fakalaumālie" ina tukua tatou haere o te hara, me te hopu i te mau o Ihu. Na ka tono ia tatou ia ki te omaoma. ngā ohaohatanga a ia tatou tana kupu, tana iwi, a tae noa tana taringa. Na kia lau a, uru, a inoi. whakangungu pakeke kaitäkaro no te e hiahia ana ratou ki te kia rite mo te kēmu tukinga ranei mua o ratou. e hiahia ana ratou ki te e taea ki te whakataetae i te taumata tiketike.

ka fehangahangai katoa o tatou whakamātautau fakalaumālie, mau tamataraa, me whawhai rā. Kua rite koe? e kore e ka pahemo whakauaua mahi hoki kaitäkaro me kore e mahi i te reira no te mau Kerisetiano. e kore he nui pānui Bibilia o tērā tau ki te paturu a koutou i tenei tau. Ka anake hanga e matou i te reira i roto i tenei marathon e te aroha noa o te Atua, engari faaineine ia tatou mo te iwi i roto i to tatou mahi fakalaumālié.

te reira āwhina ki ahau mo te mahara e ia e iti te hua o te whakangungu tinana, He mutunga nga hua o te whakangungu fakalaumālie. I runga i aua ra, no te kore ahau e ite rite inoi tai'oraa ranei te Parau a te Atua, Ka taea e ahau fakamanatu ahau e kore he iti rangitahi ranei te painga. e kore e tauturu i anake te reira ahau wiki i muri, ka tauturu i te reira ahau i roto i te ora i muri. Ko te te hihiri katoa e hiahia ana ahau.

    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. GregBrownWhakautu

    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!

  3. MattWhakautu

    whakaae ahau. 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, etc. Engari, 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. Colossians 3:17

    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 “Te ora pai”.

    THANK YOU!

  6. MrsRondoWhakautu

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

  7. Tee-boyWhakautu

    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? Trip, 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.

    manaaki te Atua,
    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,

    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 :)

  11. LiamWhakautu

    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. BrianWhakautu

    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. Trip mihi

  13. NjokiWhakautu

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

  14. NgosaWhakautu

    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!!
