Persevere (an excerpt from Week 5 of the Flesh Tamers Fitness program)

 We may be wanting to slack off, we may be tired or wanting to fall back into comfort mode. Yet, we are persevering, building character, and building hope in our future and in God’s plan.

Keep striving for the goals you set when you started this 6 week journey. Add a little extra weight to your workout, run a little faster pace, keep good form and add an extra squat in that 30 seconds, but don’t give up even if you can’t.

We must press on, build a habit and make this a lifestyle change. Once we finish this 6 week program we’ll add some extra daily routine options and start working on progressing into some tougher exercises. But we have to build up our core stability and endurance first.

We are taming the flesh and extending the mission!

Romans 5:1-11

“1 Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom also we have obtained our introduction by faith into this grace in which we stand; and we exult in hope of the glory of God. 3 And not only this, but we also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; 4 and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope; 5 and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

6 For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. 7 For one will hardly die for a righteous man; though perhaps for the good man someone would dare even to die. 8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him. 10 For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. 11 And not only this, but we also exult in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.”
