I am sanctified in Christ Jesus and called to be his Holy people.
I receive grace and peace from God the Father and my Lord Jesus Christ.
For in Christ Jesus, I have been enriched in every way with all kinds of speech and with all knowledge.
Therefore, I do not lack any spiritual gift as I eagerly wait for my Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed.
He will also keep me firm to the end so that I will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.
God is faithful, who has called me into fellowship with his son Jesus Christ my Lord.
Of the innermost desires of our soul
Transformation does beautify
It adds glow to our shine
Sprint to our gait!
Align your desires with the Word of God
Watch God transform you by His Words
You will be amazed by the new you
Standing strong and tall
With courage and boldness
To declare, proclaim and prophesy
The love of Christ for humanity
The promises of The Everlasting Father for his children
The creation of heaven on earth
As ordained of God The Father
Omnipotent, Omnipresent, Omniscient
Immortal, invincible, only wise God
To whom be glory, honor, and adoration
World without end!
Read Jeremiah 31: 1- end
The scripture enjoins us to work out our salvation with fear and trembling. Mary Graziano Scro captured this and broke it down to pieces for us to swallow easily in her book Intentional Fitness. You see friends, to achieve anything in life we have to be intentional, be it career,living a healthy life,keeping fit, marriage, raising kids, living a good christian life, everything involves been intentional, paying attention for it to be successful and yield us desired result.
If we want to be transformed to be who God created us to be, then we have to intentionally crave the sincere milk of the word so that we may grow up in our Salvation. 1Peter 2:2 paraphrased. This Mary has been able to illustrate in a real life scenario, even with her life experiences.
Friends, when we study the Word of God daily we get to know who God is, what he expect of us and only then are we able to see ourselves in light of his word. God’s love is unconditional and in him we are new creations. 2 Corinthians 5:17. He loves us with an everlasting love and nothing can separate us from that love. Romans 8:37-39.
Intentional Fitness brings the focus of our Christian walk back to the source which is God, his word and who we are in Christ Jesus. Like physical fitness, intentional fitness in spiritual realm involves our exercising our faith by eating adequate word about God, our needs, expectation and knowing who we are in Christ.
Mary’s book is a must read for everyone who really wants to grow in their Christian work and be Christ ambassador on earth.
We live in a world that desperately needs Jesus, but can’t find Him.
Why? Because many who bear His name (Christians) are not spiritually fit enough to walk in His ways. And how do you know what “fit” is in a world that is increasingly void of any mention of the name of Jesus? How do you hear His voice to know His ways with so much godless static assaulting you every day, from all directions?
“Therefore, my dear friends . . . continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling . . .” Philippians 2:12 (NIV).
Intentional Fitness compares physical fitness to spiritual fitness and discusses similarities. Only by being intentional about your own spiritual health can you live life to the full as Jesus created you to live and died to make possible for you. And only then can you bring the Kingdom of God and His love to a world in desperate need.
