We should treat our faith like athletes train for the Olympics.
I am so excited that in just two months, we get to witness another summer Olympics. I love the idea of the whole world coming together for competition. These athletes train their bodies to prepare for peak performance at the right time when it matters most. I can guarantee you that my Memorial Day looked a lot different than it did for one of these athletes! Well, the same is true for our faith. Our One Verse today, 1 Corinthians 9:24, teaches that we need to be prepared to run our race well. This life is a marathon. And I hope to run in such a way that one day I’ll stand before Jesus and He will say, “Well done!” I have the same prayer for you.
One Verse is a short, daily devotional designed to help you grow closer to God through less than 5 minutes a day, 5 days a week.
Consistency trumps intensity. When it comes to working out, eating healthy, or managing our finances, consistency always trumps intensity. We reach our major life goals through small, purposeful steps taken daily. The same is true in our spiritual lives. I truly believe you will grow closer to God by spending just 5 minutes a day with Him versus cramming in an hour once a month. The One Verse Devotional is here to help take away the barriers of spending time with God. Now, during your workout, drive to work, or even shopping for groceries, you can invest in your spiritual life.
