Strengthening the Heart

Our Daily Bread -- Strengthening the Heart
July 6, 2016

Read: 1 Timothy 4:6-11
Bible in a Year: Job 32-33; Acts 14

It is good for our hearts to be strengthened by grace. óHebrews 13:9

The neighborhood fitness center where I have worked out for years closed down last month, and I had to join a new gym. The former place was a warm, friendly facility, patronized by those who liked to socialize while they worked out. We hardly ever broke a sweat. The new gym is a hard-core facility filled with serious men and women, earnestly invested in building better bodies. I watch these people strain and toil. Their bodies look strong, but I wonder if their hearts are being strengthened with grace.

The heart is a muscleóthe muscle that keeps the other muscles going. Itís good to build and tone our other muscles, but the essential thing is doing whatever keeps the heart strong.

So it is with our spiritual heart. We strengthen and tone the heart through the Word of truth by receiving its message of Godís goodness and grace. Keeping our spiritual heart strong and fit must be our first priority, the one thing we do above all others.

Paul would agree: ďTrain yourself for godliness; for while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to comeĒ (1 Tim. 4:7-8 esv). óDavid Roper

May I feed on Your goodness every day, Lord, so my heart will grow stronger through the Spirit.

Godís training is designed to grow us in faith.

INSIGHT: The Greek word translated godliness in verse 8 is eusebeia. It is a noun that means both right action and right belief. In todayís passage Paul is telling Timothy that both believing and doing right (godliness) have value for all aspects of our lives. Dennis Moles
