I have never met a physically strong person, yet, who hadn’t put in hard work and determination, to become what I could see.
There are those of us who like to think that ”enhancers” help achieve this goal, but it boils down to, an individual deciding to take the time and effort to set goals, and one day at a time, work towards them
The same thing applies to our Spiritual strength…
How many of us want to take ”enhancers” with our walk with Christ? To wake up one day and we aren’t only strong in our faith, but we are walking in our calling right there and then. No preparation needed – because we are that good.
Yet, the reality is, anything worth having, takes time, commitment, hard work, and determination.
There are some of us looking for a ”quick” how-to-guide, for Christianity…
We want the results, now
The muscles, but not the process of the ripped fibres being strengthened and repaired after the work-out.
1 Thessalonians 3:13 gives us the means to our hearts being strong. It’s the guide for our Christian walk with the Lord…
The result (from us walking with the Holy Spirit) is a strong heart, which means we become blameless (by seeking out that daily workout with Christ- with determination, and strength), that we ultimately become Holy in God’s eyes.
That is the sanctification process.
We walk with the Spirit to become like Christ and fulfil our God-given purpose, as a Son or Daughter of the Most High.
The result of that intimate relationship with God – is the Spiritual muscle (or our calling) but there has always been a time of preparation, blood, sweat and tears, for anyone walking in that call
It’s time for our Spiritual workout.
Don’t take shortcuts
