1 Corinthians 6:20, “GOD paid a great price for you, so use your body to honour Him.”
Beyond the hype, the hashtags, the workout wears and fitness quotes on Instagram, exercise is a sacrifice and an offering to GOD.
Our bodies are completely and extraordinarily created. The amazing network of cells, blood vessels, tissue and muscles is a testament to the genius nature of GOD and His love for us.
Our bodies have taken the most brilliant scientists years upon years to understand and they are still trying to understand it.
What does this mean for me and you?
GOD created our bodies with utmost precision and love and it’s only right that we care for it and treat it as an impeccable work of art which it is.
At the end of the day, it’s not about how you feel or I’m not really like into this fitness lifestyle, it’s about how we owe it to GOD to care for our bodies.
Think of it for a moment, it’s not too difficult to care for your body. Sleep well, drink enough water, cut down sugar, eat in appropriate portions and exercise.
Indeed to keep things running smoothly, we need to keep our water levels right, keep your joints moving and maintain correct postures.
If someone gave you a Picasso masterpiece, how would you treat it? You would probably hang it in you living room and keep it from harm, how much more, the masterpiece that is your body, given by the Creator.
If there was ever a reason to get up and get serious about fitness or if you ever needed motivation, here it is; GOD created you a masterpiece and as such, it is your duty to honor Him with your body.
