Reflections From Corinne’s Garden
Magnifying the Light of Jesus in our Daily Lives
Day 4 – A Day of Soul Stretching Exercises with Jesus
“I am the light of the world. The one who follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life. “ John 8:12, NET
As we move closer to the end of this week I want to look at what it means to stretch our souls. 2 Peter 1:5-8 enlightens us with ….”.In every effort to respond to God’s promises supplement your faith with a generous portion of moral excellence”……….When I have a question about something such as this that arises I “run” to my Master and His word to find directions and encouragement for spiritual exercise.
Quite possibly, more than ever before Health Clubs are springing up around our planet addressing the need for physical exercise. My town seems to have “one on every corner”. Along with this comes a great emphasis on supplements. All of this is important to our physical well being but let’s look at the seven “Faith Supplements” that God encourages us to add to our spiritual health routine. The first is Moral Excellence + Knowledge + Self-Control + Patient Endurance + Godliness + Brotherly Affection and finally Love for Everyone. We take vitamin supplements to strengthen our body – we do stretching exercises to maintain balance and strength. God’s word says this in 2 Peter 1:8 (NLT)….”the more you grow like this; the more productive and useful you will be in your knowledge of Jesus Christ.” I align “Stretching my Soul” with “Stretching my Faith”.
Thoughtful Reflection ~ what is one thing you can do today to “stretch your soul after taking your faith supplements?
