I realized this week that our church is more like a spiritual gym, than a place of spiritual entertainment and relaxation. If your someone who is physically lazy and has no interest in building your body then the gym will be more like torture than a help.
However, if you are sincere about putting off some denominational baggage and growing stronger in your knowledge of the truth then our weekly regimen of intense Bible studies may be exactly what you need.
Spiritual growth does not result from sitting and watching someone else entertain you. It takes real effort and work applied to the word of God. It requires sweat and repetition. In a gym the word “uplifting” has a whole new meaning.
If “work” and “bible study” makes your inner man cringe then you have let your inner man become a spiritual couch potato. If you can see the benefit of a gym to the body you can see the benefit of Bible study to the body of Christ.
Get up off the pew and become a workman that need not be ashamed.
For your edification,
Justin “bodybuilding” Johnson
