Proverbs of a 37 yr old man
You need energy. Your body needs energy for everything it does and so does your faith, apart from Christ you can do nothing. In order to get more energy you need to break it down in good measure. Pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your heart and life. A sedentary spirit will not do well for our faith. We need to be active Christians, more than just faith alone but actually deeds that accompany it. Our faith needs to grow, and we need the energy to do that. The Holy Spirit is the strength we need to keep our body and spirit at a godly pace. Think about it, though are physical bodies are breaking down over time our inner man is being renewed daily by the Spirit of Christ. The gift of faith found in Jesus gives us what we need to live life more abundantly and not in the curse of sin. Just like our bodies need food to eat our spirit needs the Living Word Himself daily. The body uses energy to eat, digest and metabolize food, and to burn kilojoules during physical activity, but it also needs a large amount of energy to exist in a state of complete rest. Our end goal daily in our faith should be at a complete state of rest in Christ. Yes, we have physical activity throughout the day, as well as physical trials and tribulations that we face daily. Our energies are constantly being used depleting us of our strength and spirit. Breaking down what we have within us and needing renewed energy throughout the day. Many of us get complacent and all our energy goes to stored fat. The potential of growth of muscle and health of organ decreases if we squander such an opportunity of grace. The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words that Jesus has spoken to us are full of the Spirit and life. Those who feel tired and worn out will find new life and energy. He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless. Even those who are young grow weak; young people can fall exhausted. Yet, the strength of those who wait with hope in the LORD will be renewed. Their strength grows as they go along until each one of them appears in front of God in Zion. You need energy and apart from Christ you can do nothing. With faith even as small as a mustard seed, spirit and life can begin to stir within you. Having an energy that comes from eternal life Himself Jesus Christ.
