Just as physical growth demands physical
exercise, spiritual growth as a Christian demands spiritual exercise. Here are seven daily
exercises to build spiritual muscle:
1. Daily Die to Self
"I die every day . . . in Christ Jesus our Lord." 1 Corinthians 15:31 Yield
complete control of your life to Jesus Christ every day.
2. Daily Obedience to Christ
"Then he said to them all: If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself
and take up his cross daily and follow me." Luke 9:23 Every day, commit
yourself to obeying God and His Word.
3. Daily Bible Reading
" . . . they . . . examined the Scriptures every day . . ." Acts 17:11 Spend
time every day reading Gods Word. (Begin by reading through John or Mark.)
4. Daily Prayer
Give us today our daily bread." Matthew 6:11 Devote time every day
talking to God in prayer.
5. Daily Fellowship
encourage one another daily
" Hebrews 3:13 Get involved with your
local church, and seek regular fellowship with other Christians.
6. Daily Witnessing
"Day after day
they never stopped teaching and proclaiming the good news that
Jesus is the Christ." Acts 5:42 Tell others about Jesus Christ every day through your
words and actions.
7. Daily Praise
"Seven times a day I praise you." Psalm 119:164 Praise God every day for who He
is and what He has done.
