TOPIC: PAY ATTENTION TO THE REAL YOU.
For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come. 1Timothy 4:8
From time to time, it is important to remind ourselves of who we truly are. As a man, you are not the flesh or body which you can see, you are a spirit. It is therefore surprising to see that most people even Christians pay attention to the flesh than to their true selves.
While it is okay to take care and exercise our physical bodies, Paul through the Spirit in our opening verse reveals that this does us little good when compared to the exercise of our spirit. This is so because the physical is a product of the spirit.
No matter how a man develops himself physically without spiritual development, he is still subject to the elements of this world.
The reason some have not been able to develop themselves spiritually is because they find it difficult to relate with spiritual matters, however, the truth is spiritual things are just as tangible and real as physical things, it all depends on your view point.
Just as a man eats physically to grow and have a healthy body, more importantly he needs to feed on the word of God for his spirit to grow and be healthy. An unhealthy spirit will lead to an unhealthy body with time. Also, just as we exercise our physical bodies, there are also spiritual exercises that build our spiritual muscles and God expects us to pay more attention to them than the physical ones.
God is a Spirit and only relates with us through our spirits so pay attention to your spirit man today because it is the real you. Have a great day.
FURTHER STUDY: Hebrews 5:14. John 4:23-24.
CONFESSION: I am a spirit I have a soul and live in a body. I live from the Spirit out. Thank you Lord for the consciousness of who I am. I live by this reality everyday
