The Commonwealth Games started a couple of days ago in Glasgow and we see athletes from around the world competing together in an atmosphere of mutual respect.
We can enjoy watching athletes who have honed their bodies to perfection. They train for hours and hours to get their bodies to the peak of fitness.
Let’s take this theme of getting fit and healthy to the ultimate.
Why not take the opportunity this summer to go to a spiritual fitness centre as well as a physical one.
Read the Bible and find out which event God wants you to enter in the Commonwealth Games of life. Find out what you need to hone to get to the ultimate fitness.
The Apostle Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 9:24 – 25: Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever.
Why not get spiritually fit this summer!
