The Point Of It All
Hey everyone, As we're about to resume devotions after the long weekend, I wanted to help set the stage for those who are new (and there are a lot of you, so welcome and thank you). And to those who have been with us for weeks, months or years, you know how much I cherish you; not sure there's a word I can type that can best express it. But put plainly, Jesus is the point of our story. He's the point of our ministry. And the PrayFit veterans among you know that it's not simply a catch phrase. Amidst the waves of an out-of-balance fitness industry, we treat that truth like the life-preserver it is. We cling to it. Eyes closed and white-knuckled, we clutch it. He's the point of our health we can't miss.
As often as we can, we strive to help you see fitness through a biblical prism and allow God's word, characters, examples, stories and parables to guide, motivate, encourage, inspire, and transform our daily lives. You'll hear me say it often, but health is a faith battle. No matter where you are -- fit or unfit, healthy or ill -- the bible has something to say to you about your body.
No matter where you are -- fit or unfit, healthy or ill -- the bible has something to say to you about your body.
So as we begin a new chapter at PrayFit, let this simple prayer help. Some of you have read it before and for others it's brand new. Either way, let it be a reminder that the weight you hold in your hands means nothing if you let opportunities to witness slip through them. More muscle is not your mission. Fitness is not your frontier. And on the other hand, if you're not honoring Him with your body, may this be a reminder that you were wonderfully created for an abundant, healthy, vibrant life; a life designed to follow Him and recruit others to do the same.
Indeed, He's the point of your health I don't want you to miss. If you're looking for a life-preserver, you're in real good company. Grab hold. Welcome to PrayFit.
Details soon, but please be praying for His renown. PrayFit Rise will be a celebration of grace and health. A time where faith and fitness collide. We'll have speakers, experts, wonderful preachers and some very special guests. The venue for this unique and groundbreaking event is about to be unveiled and early-bird registration is soon to begin. Most importantly though, please pray for us as we plan and prepare to roll this inaugural event out. Thank you!
