“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.” - Ephesians 6:10
I love strength training and exercise, but if I want to feel strong or be able to run a 5k, I have to continually put in the work to make things happen. The same is true in our spiritual lives!
In Ephesians 6, Paul reminds the church of Ephesus to “be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.” How do we grow to be strong in the Lord? We build our spiritual muscles just like we build our physical muscles through working out! Three easy ways are through scripture, prayer, and community.
As we invest in reading God’s word, talking with Him, and being with His people, we can look back to see how our faith has strengthened. Just like exercise, sometimes strengthening our spiritual lives feels painful or challenging, but it’s always, always worth it. May you feel strengthened in your walk with God today as you draw close to Him.
