Exercise: Is There Any Spiritual Value To It?

by Michael T. Graham Jr. – Nov 7


Does our physical body impact our spiritual body? Is there anyway to make physical activity spiritual? David Mathis addresses these very questions in an article entitled, Do You Exercise Like a Nonbeliever?. In this article he suggests two ways to change exercise from merely a physical activity to a spiritual activity?
1. Receive Exercise with Thanksgiving (1 Timothy 4:4-5)
2. Make Exercise Holy through prayer remembering that God owns our Body and he commends bodily exertion (2 Thessalonians 3:10; Ephesians 4:28; 2 Timothy 2:6).
