Fall is now here and it is a most beautiful season. With the Fall flowers blooming, and the leaves changing colors and falling from the trees. Another sign that it is fall is that summer is over and everyone is back to their normal routine. For some it is the beginning of a new year for the start of school and for others it is back to work.
This fall many of the topics for newspapers, magazines, talk radio, and other media has to do with losing weight, eating healthy, and exercising. These topics bring loads of advertisements for such things as diet books, diet foods and loads of weight loss products, whole food products, along with exercising equipment to keep in shape.
All of this to help us to live and eat healthier so that we can be physically fit.
But what about our spiritual fitness? We are not just physical beings.We are spiritual beings as well and need to address the needs of our spiritual nature.
To be spiritually fit we have to feed our spiritual nature with spiritual food and do spiritual exercises. Spiritual fitness also involves spiritual training and spiritual discipline.
As we take care of the physical, let us not forget the spiritual as well. One of our spiritual exercises is walking by faith. Unlike physical walking where we can see where we are going, spiritual walking is by faith and not by sight.(2 Cor.5:7). Walking by faith is believing God’s promises will be fulfilled even when we can’t see them. With the gloomy situation that the world is in today, we need spiritual fitness more now then we ever did before. Having a healthy spiritual life will also help us with our physical fitness.
