Sermon 66 – EXERCISE FOR LIFE

If you don’t exercise you will atrophy. That is, your body will deteriorate and eventually die.

Exercise is stress. As babies we had to learn to stand and walk. If you don’t put yourself under that stress then you will never train the neural pathways from your brain to your muscles which are designed to make your muscles work, and your bones will never be strong enough to support your vertical weight. It’s not automatic, it has to be stressed. It’s a stress to get up and walk. Running is a stress on your body. Like a tree needs the wind to stress it so it can strengthen itself, so moderate exercise is necessary for your body to stay healthy. And exercise needs to be done 3 times per week for 20-30 minutes in order to at least maintain and hopefully improve your level of strength.

Sermon 5 – THE BLINDNESS OF DISRESPECT

The cause of spiritual blindness is pride, and the irony is, pride doesn’t think it’s proud nor blind, it thinks you are.

Our society today runs on the fuel of “be your own person; don’t let anyone tell you what to do.” A saved Christian already knows they have that right; but an unsaved Christian demands it as their right. It’s rationalised as “surely I have the right to figure it out for myself.” The difference between an unsaved Christian and a saved Christian is Read the rest of this entry »
