A few months before my wedding day, I looked in the mirror and decided that I needed to lose a little weight. The next day, I went all out and bought new workout shorts, new running shoes, and new workout shirt.
I went and joined the local gym and determined I would start the next Monday…
I never did.
I had the clothes.
I had the gym membership.
I had a way to get to the gym.
I even rode by the gym a few times.
But I never went in.
So, I never got into shape,
never lost a pound.
I think a lot of Christians just drive by the gym.
We know how we need to grow in our faith.
We’ve been given the tools to do it.
We know how to use those tools.
But we never tap into them…
we just drive by the gym.
I wonder what would happen if we all started to get in the gym and use the tools that we have?
If we began to practice the disciplines that we say we believe in.
Started to live out the faith we have.
Began to use our relationships and time for the things that matter.
In what part of life do you find yourself just driving by the gym?
