Monday – September 13th – 1 Timothy 4:7-9     -----     
 
4:7 But reject profane and old wives' fables, and exercise yourself toward godliness. 
8 For bodily exercise profits a little, but godliness is profitable for all things, having promise of the life that now is and of that which is to come. 
9 This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance.

 The Daily Walk Bible inspirational thought for today:
        MERCY IMITATES GOD AND DISAPPOINTS SATAN.*
 
    Good Monday to you! The SunRise “Awakening & Rival Rising” church wide study is off and running this week. Groups are gathering to pray for and to seek an awakening from the Holy Spirit in the individual lives of the SunRise family. Included in our all-church focus is a call to 500 hours of prayer during this study. Every person can be part of this prayer emphasis by texting to our prayer calculator at 636-303-1704. In the message area type in one of the following notification options – 6am, 7am, 8am, or 7pm.  Each day you will receive a reminder to pray followed by a second text to log the total of your prayer time for the day. I have a 6am notification and then log my totals for the day before. When we are all praying, we are helping light the fires of spiritual revival in our church and into our communities.
 
    In our pick verses today, Paul continues this set of personal instructions for Timothy. Paul compares physical and spiritual health as a way to encourage Timothy to not shy away from tough disciplines in life. In our current society there is an enormous amount of emphasis put on physical health through exercise programs and diet plans, but spiritual health is even more important for our overall well-being. Our physical health is susceptible to disease and injury, but a strong and developed faith can sustain us through the physical challenges we face in life. To train ourselves to be godly, we must develop our faith by using our God-given abilities in service to the church’s ministries and missions. How are you developing your spiritual muscles?

Blessings
