FAITH

I haven’t discussed the name “FaithFit7,” so let me do it now.  There are many words that describe Christianity, being a Christian, following Jesus Christ, and having faith.  I tend to focus on faith as the most important element of being a Christian.  Having faith means that we are able to trust God with everything.  It’s not just a word, it is a complete way of life.  That said, it takes every element to be complete and perfect in our walk with Jesus Christ.

In a later post, I’ll get into what is required of us to be a Christian, a follower of Jesus Christ, and to have faith in God the Father, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit.

FITNESS

Therefore lift your drooping hands and strengthen your weak knees, 

Hebrews 12:12

In Hebrews 12 the writer uses athletics as sameness with spiritual growth.  Taking care of our bodies, the temples built by God is part of our walk with Jesus.  The walk will be long, and arduous at times, so being healthy and fit will help us along the narrow path.

SEVEN

In the scriptures of the Holy Bible, the number 7 symbolizes completeness and perfection, both spiritual and physical.  I have to admit that perfection is a pretty lofty goal for men here on earth, but we can strive in earnest.

Jesus said to him, “If you would be perfect, go, sell what you possess and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me.” 

Matthew 19:21

Let’s continue the journey and keep on living…
