Health and Fitness

Please visit Spiritual Sunday

This is a huge topic now days that people associate with physical looks and strength. Where there is a big push especially for Americans to eat better and exercise more often…..All that only touches on your physical life.

What about your spiritual health and fitness? Why is there no push to improve in this area? For many years we have known that we are as much spiritual as we are physical beings. In fact our spiritual health impacts our eternal soul not just what we do here on earth. You may be saying to yourself that I am spiritually fit…I go to church every Sunday like clockwork. Yet how many of you can tell me what it is your pastor, reverend or preacher talked about this past Sunday and how you used this knowledge to fulfill your spiritual obligations.

It’s not that we’re bad Christians our hearts are in the right places….It’s just that so many of us believe or obligations end when the sermon stops. I once had a good friend of mine tell me that they were doing God’s work because they went to church regularly. To me, church is where you go to worship and learn His message. The real work is done after you have left the confines of the church and put into practice what you’ve learned. Make sure you talk to your pastor about his sermon and how it applies to you……I guarantee there are a lot of people in that church who don’t understand the message. You see the sermon means nothing if it stays just another speech from the pastor. He is there to motivate you, to help you find inspiration in the word of God, for you then to go out and make a difference in your community, your family or to those who are lost without a clue on how to find their way home to God.

That doesn’t mean only certain people; God wants to reconnect with all of His children.

I can speak from the receivers’ point of view, for I have been lost for many years. It took someone who decided to put into practice what she learned from her church and in studying the Bible. With her help I WILL find my way home to God.

Just remember from this message that we are physical and spiritual beings, one side being in tune without the other in balance and we are only half of what we could be…

All your children shall be taught by the Lord, and great shall be the peace of your children. Isaiah 54:13

God Bless you…..


  1. You've done amazing things on both your physical and spiritual being. God's power in your life is shining for all to see.

    Love you, Mike.

  2. Great post! I am amazed at how much you've grown in your knowledge & understanding in such a short period of time! I was praying just the other day about this same topic, that I would be "doer" of the Word, and not just a "hearer"! (James 1:21-25), (Matthew 7:24) Thanks for sharing.

  3. Hello Mike, I so agree with your post today. We need spiritual health for sure. Going to church is wonderful but living the christian life and contributing to your spiritual health with active living and learning more and most of all applying what you have learned to your daily life. Being a spiritual person it itself, is a witness to others.

    Thank you for your post today.

    Hugs, Jeanne

  4. This is a very good post and soo true. Church on Sunday IS only the beginning. We have to spend time every single day in His Word. It has to be soo familiar to us that living it out is all we can do. This was a good reminder, thanks for sharing it. Blessings to you, Debbie

  5. Mike what a well needed post today. So many people care more about their physical rather than the spiritual.
    God Bless,

  6. Excellent message. You too are a preacher. Thank you for these words we needed to hear.

  7. You are so right about this. Worship is so important but being a light in a dark world and doing whatever we can for others is the heart of Christianity.
    Thank you for sharing.
