Don't be a Flabby Christian

Posted on April 28, 2012 at 2:58 PM
In my last post, I talked about how the Bible compares the Christian life to a race. The Bible also teaches that Christians are part of the body of Christ (1Corinthians 12:27). We work together to accomplish God's plans. Ephesians 2:10 says, "For we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago." Isn't it exciting to think that God has specific good works planned for us to do? Have you ever wondered what those works are? If you're not sure about it, talk with God. He will show you. 

There is much work to be done, but sometimes as Christians, we can let ourselves get flabby. It is so easy to get distracted living in a country of plenty. It is so easy to focus on ourselves only, and not on the reason God has blessed us in the first place...so we can pass that love and blessing on to others. I have experienced visiting third world countries where people literally lived in cardboard houses, yet they were spiritually wealthy. The best part is that when we are doing what God has created us to do, nothing can compare with that kind of abundant and fulfilling life. 

1 Timothy 7b-8
"Exercise yourself toward godliness. For bodily exercise profits a little, but godliness is profitable for all things, having promise of the life that now is and of that which is to come." 

I just finished reading the book Kisses from Katie . What an inspiring story about a girl who lives out every day following God's call on her life. The following is a video about the author, a young woman who found the good works God had planned for her. She was senior class president at her school and homecoming queen before embarking on this exciting adventure.
