Gym Up!

“…Train yourself toward godliness (piety), [keeping yourself spiritually fit]. For physical training (bodiliy exercise) is of some value (useful for a little), but godliness (spiritual training) is useful and of value in everything and in every way, for it holds promise for the present life and also for the life which is to come…” © 1 Tim 4:7b,8 AMP, italics and emphasis mine

Physical exercise is essential to a long and healthy life but as any athelete would tell you, regardless of your exercise regime if you don't eat right, you may as well stop torturing yourself. Paul uses this analogue to help young Timothy understand spiritual discipline needed in training to Godliness.

We train spiritually by feeding and practicing the word. Now don't let religion get you twisted; righteousness unto sonship of God is a free gift by Grace but godliness – i.e. walking/working as God would in the flesh is a practice of discipline to perfection as we transform our minds with the word.
