Free & Fit - How to Become Spiritually Fit in an Unfit Physical World

Free & Fit - How to Become Spiritually Fit in an Unfit Physical World by TJ Cheux

What makes a fitness class fun?! 

How does the instructor entice you to work faster?! 

For sure we know when we are being challenged to get to the next level during your increased incline, raised reps or sweatier sets. The class is fast, the music is loud and the participants are all moving to the tune of the beat, but today the quality of the class is no longer just about the speed of the music, the encouragement of the instructor and the intensity of the class. 

What makes fitness fun? How can we make our fitness goals not interfere with our faith?

We must pursue a Forever Faith in an Unfit World!

If we are not careful we just may miss a step, lose our form and become off balance as the temperature increases. If we do not pay attention to our faith, in a world where our consumer experience is a little more important, then we may just experience an indifference in our own faith performance. 

Whether you are an avid yogi, cardio junky or disciplined road runner the life of a Christian, in a growing secular culture, becomes more and more about what we should be doing according to our social media trends, our news feeds and our fashion trends and less about reading our bibles, taking sabbath time to spiritually journal or focus intimately on God during our private prayer time. 

It’s time to set our focus forward towards the goals of becoming fit forever for the faith of a lifetime, not just a quick hit or exercise routine. If we simply sit still we put on weight, if we refrain from exercising we experience reversibility and if we continually seek self preservation without God intervention we can become unaware of our spiritual fitness slowly becoming in decline. As well as our physical fitness becoming in decline, our relationship to God and Neighbour also be slipping away from us.


Paul spoke about how our spiritual fitness is of some value, but our spiritual fitness is of INFINITE value! 

”Physical training is good, but training for godliness is much better, promising benefits in this life and in the life to come.”

‭‭1 Timothy‬ ‭4‬:‭8‬ ‭NLT‬‬

What will we do in response to these things?

Will we continue training our physical bodies without the pursuit of Christ being our first love? 

We must ensure both our fitness levels, in a physical sense, match our pursuit for Holiness. Through the practice of daily devotions to the Lord we can use our exercise classes in a positive way by listening to worship music, meditating and memorizing scriptures and even praying to God for his divine intervention into our lives. 

As the scriptures teach us if we will ask God, if we will seek after His face and knock at His door he will open the door and let us into His presence. 

”Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.“

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭7‬:‭7‬ ‭

As we pursue Him and seek His presence in our physical fitness we can find Him and His Kingdom in our spiritual fitness growing with Him, closer in our physical world and for His Kingdom to become our personal reality. 

”May he send you help from his sanctuary and strengthen you from Jerusalem.“

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭20‬:‭2‬ ‭NLT

We are assured of Christ being our ever present help in trouble, that he will send his angels and archangels upon us if we will only pursue Him first, forever and always for a lifetime of faith with a fitness that will last all eternity!

Let us Pray for God to Use our Fitness for His Kingdom:

Father God be in our hearts, be in our minds and flow through your Holy Spirit right where we are right now. Interrupt our days, our exercise classes and our routines so we can get ever so closer to you. Reveal yourself to us in all we do and help us pursue your presence everywhere we go. In Jesus name. Amen

Prayers & Blessings as we pursue Faith and Fitness as one!

“So it is good to wait quietly for salvation from the Lord.”

‭‭Lamentations‬ ‭3:26‬ ‭NLT‬‬
