God’s Gym

Do you desire to have more of the presence and power of God in your life? The presence and power of God in your life is needed to make heaven your home. When Jesus sees the Father in us, he cannot deny us at the judgment. He can never tell us to depart from him (And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Matthew 7:23). The definition of iniquity is immoral, sinful behavior. The power of God will enable others, including Jesus, our judge, to truly see the presence of God in our lives.

It is imperative to join and stay in God’s Gym so that we can be fit. The church is the Body of Christ, and we must fitly be joined together in the unity of faith (There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism. Ephesians 4:4-5). Being committed to and chastened in the gym, we go through some pain. You know the expression, NO PAIN, NO GAIN! Through the exercising of my faith and through chastening and consecration, my peaceable fruit of righteousness grows stronger. In God’s gym, I grow stronger in the Lord (Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest. Joshua 1:7).

In God’s gym, we want to get a good workout in (…workout your own salvation with fear and trembling. For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure. Philippians 2:12-13). The workout helps with endurance (And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. Galatians 6:9). (But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. Matthew 24:13).

I think of the man Simon who offered money to the apostles to buy the power of the Holy Ghost (Acts 8:18-25). Peter, of course, rebuked him and told him, “Thy money perish with thee.” Money won’t give anyone membership in God’s gym nor shaking anyone’s hand. It is only through forgiveness of sin through the blood of Jesus Christ that will give anyone membership to God’s gym. Join God’s gym today because one day soon, there will be “No New Memberships Allowed”.
