Summary: This is an outline of how we should reevaluate our lives and our priorities

There comes a time in most of our lives that we want to get in better shape.

Health - Medical conditions / Weight loss / Baby weight


This involves a process

• Comitment – Just joining wont get you in shape – Set a schedule

• Equipment / Trainers

• Fatigue

• Progress

• Set backs

• Days where you just want to give up.

They’re 2 things about our commitment to get in shape that can be applied to our Christian life

First our personal bodies

1Co 6:19 Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 1Co 6:20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.

Now this verse is most often interprited as dealing with Sexual Imorality

• But today I want to expand on this

• Paul is instructing us to not treat our bodies negatively (Elab)

• So if we shouldn’t treat them negatively we should treat them Possitively

• While its true that we should refrain from Sexual Imorality

• We should also look in the begining of verse 19

• Your body is a Temple – And Who lives in this temple – The Holy Spirit

Now home improvemnent is big buisness these days

• We buy houses to flip (Explain) We’re taking something old & making it new

• We renovate our own (Elab) Our House The Kitchen Cabinets

• If the church were to suffer and need repair we would have a work day and fix it

• What we have done since I’ve been here

• So why wouldn’t we want to remodel the temple / our bodies for the Holy Spirit

(Elab on How)

Second our Church bodies

Ac 20:24 However, I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the gospel of God’s grace.

• Getting in shape at the gym Can also be compared to our ministries

• Not just mine but everyones

Our Ministries involve a process (It doesn’t happpen overnight)

• Comitment – If I don’t do something they’re gonna die and go to hell

• Equipment / Trainers

• Fatigue

• Progress

• Set back - Sometimes people Leave (Elab)Days where you just want to give up
