Keep the Body in Which Christ Lives Both Physically and Spiritually Fit

Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit lives in you? – 1 Corinthians 3:16

Written in the post “Exercise for the Soul” is the statement that physical training has great benefits for your present physical health but it’s the exercise of the soul that provides everlasting gain.

One idea I’ve tried in my exercise routine is to listen to Christian music while I work out. The mixing of praise music and exercise provides benefits to both the physical body and the spiritual body. One song that really gets the body moving and inspires for a good day is Beautiful Day by Jamie Grace. 



This day with God, keep the body in which Christ lives both physically and spiritually fit. Build up muscles of faith, seek Truth, experience joy, and recognize wonder.

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
