The Gospel Athlete

Eric Ludy Sermon Podcast: Church at Ellerslie show

Summary: Exercise, though uncomfortable and painful, is good and needful in the human life. Yet Paul tells Timothy that bodily exercise profits little in comparison to exercising godliness which is profitable for all things. In this ongoing series about the praying and confession Church, Eric Ludy expounds upon the difference between the sluggard and the Gospel Athlete. Too often in the Christian life we embrace laziness, hitting the snooze button of our soul. But Christians are called to action and must be trained athletes, ready for any situation. We must not merely flex in front of a mirror but prepare ourselves for the spiritual battle that lies before us. If you have ever wanted a bootcamp sergeant to yell at your soul to tell you to embrace spiritual exercise, this sermon is for you.
