Jesus Jogging

1 Corinthians 6:19 “Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought with a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.” Dr Ed Silvoso (a world-renowned evangelist who started with a successful career in the marketplace) once shared that he kept an extra chair in his office. Whenever he had a big decision or an important meeting, he would visualize Jesus sitting in the chair and have a chit chat with Him about the matter at hand. I’ve done the same and found it quite effective in being more aware of God’s presence in my business life. Well over the last couple weeks, my health has gone out the window and I feel like God is speaking to me this morning about that. While it’s true that God cares about our heart above all else, it is also true that when we transform on the inside we will see transformation on the outside. The body is also really important in the gospel message, because the whole story hinges on the fact that Jesus took bodily form. Our bodies matter, and God tells us to honor them in 1 Corinthians 6. I’ve never thought about whether Jesus would hit the gym if that existed in ancient Jerusalem. Would he be powerlifting, interval training or more a pilates kinda guy? I’ve also never thought about inviting him to join me for a jog, or to give me a spot while we lift some weights. But I’m excited to start tomorrow. When I say you are the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords, I mean that you reign over everything in my life and beyond. Father, I declare today that my body is not mine, but was bought with a price. I commit to sleep, eat and exercise in a way that honors you, and I’m really excited to have you along in the journey! I bless your mighty name. Amen.
