Why (Spiritual) Strength?

The words “strong” and “strength” are mentioned in the bible nearly 500 times. It is fair to say that being strong is important to the our God.


The strength we are called to is a strength of faith in our God or a spiritual strength.


However, we know that being strong in mind and body we are able to live a more fulfilling life.


I believe, through strength training, we can develop our bodies, minds and spirits to live a full life in Christ, and experience the full joy of Christ, which we are invited to enjoy.


I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.” John 15:11


For someone new to Christianity, as it is with physical strength, spiritual strength doesn’t come easy. There are two cardinal principles to growth: overload and progressive resistance.


The overload principle states that unless you do more than you are used to, you won’t build in strength. The principle of progressive resistance goes back to Milo of Crotona, who carried a calf a given distance each day in ancient Greece-- as the calf grew, so did Milo, getting bigger and stronger for his efforts. (Super Squats, Strossen)


Unfortunately, spiritual strength isn’t as cut and dry as weightlifting. However, I believe, through strength training, we can develop our minds and spirits to live a full life in Christ, and experience the full joy of Christ


When you are ready to discover the full joy of Christ through Body, Mind and Spiritual training, join us as we journey through a life of strength and surrender.


I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” John 15:12-13
