Paul reminds us that our spiritual training is similar to that of an athlete or professional preparing for a big event or competition. To grow in our faith and to get better at living for God, we need to rely on the tools and guidance of our Heavenly Coaches. God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit can help us in following the plan that He has for us. They can help us achieve the crown that will last forever!
Our training isn't complete without strengthening our spirit with the training equipment provided for us. We have been given the Bible, God's Word, to strengthen our minds and understanding. We are given our brothers and sisters in Christ to offer support and help us build positive relationships and we are given the world as our training ground, a place to practice showing God's love to others.
Take time each day to exercise your soul with the help of your Heavenly Coaches in order to grow spiritually and prepare yourself to live for Him!
Thank You for being my Coach and for giving me Jesus and the Holy Spirit as my Savior and my guide. Help me to listen to Your coaching in order to live my life for You. Help me to follow Your game plan so I can bring all glory to You. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
