Yesterday we unveiled our official 2021 Spiritual Workout Plan to help us all train for the Big Race.
Today we’ve included a handy graphic suitable for framing, posting on your fridge, tattooing on your biceps or anything else that will help you shun spiritual flabbiness.
The first step? It all starts with the ♥ lit up by the flame in the center. Before we even think about moving a muscle, we need to plug into our power source: the Holy Spirit.
The Bible tells us to “be filled with the Spirit” (Ephesians 5:18). It’s the only way to live:
Work out your salvation with fear and trembling.
It’s time for a real New Year’s resolution.
To help us all run the Big Race without suffering a massive spiritual coronary, today we’re kicking off our official new and improved guaranteed or your money back (keep in mind that it’s free) SPIRITUAL WORKOUT 2021.

Everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. (Matthew 7:24-25)
I love reading. I can sit with a book for hours and easily forget the world around me.
Getting up off the couch and actually doing something? Well, sometimes that’s a different story.

What happens if we don’t do what He says?
