If Christ therefore be the Saviour of all men, then much more will he be the Rewarder of those who seek and serve him; he will provide well for those whom he has made new creatures. – Matthew Henry
Who doesn’t love being rewarded?
Then, it’s a good idea to train your spiritual muscles and be a servant of Yahweh to receive His blessings for now and the future.
How do I train my spiritual muscles you ask? Let me share how you can train yourself. (Adapted from Chana Weisberg’s recipe.)
|Exercise:||When:||Spiritual Muscles Used:||Duration:||How many times:|
|Say words of thanks to Yahweh for the gift of another day of life.||Immediately upon awakening.||Introspection, connection with your Creator, gratitude.||15 seconds||Once a day, every morning.|
|Say a blessing on your food.||Before or after eating.||Gratitude and appreciation for what you have.||2-5 seconds||Throughout the day.|
|Pick up the phone and say a kind word to your parent (For those whose parents are alive.) Could be a family member.||Any time you have a spare moment (make sure you FIND that moment).||Kindness, honouring and respecting your parents/family.||5-15+ minutes||As many times as you are able, depending on circumstances.|
|Pray to Yahweh and meditate on His Word||Morning, afternoon and evening||Realign yourself, evaluation of your priorities, developing a relationship with your Creator||5 min. to 1 hour + depending on spiritual stamina||1-3 times a day|
|Volunteer to help someone who needs it.||Anytime!||Compassion, awareness of the plight of others||5 seconds-1+ hours||At least once or twice a week|
I know there is a lot more that you can do. But you must be careful not to strain your spiritual muscles or you could get disheartened with the workout and give up altogether. I have in the past.
You could just be surprised at how an investment of a few seconds several times throughout your day can give you a bunch of spiritual energy while revitalizing your whole being.
Let’s spend 2% of our day for ourselves, for Yahweh and for all of humanity?
