About Let Series
LET. Wielded by the Holy Spirit, this tiny word had a huge impact on Martha’s life, and the adventure can be yours, too, if you just LET God be GOD.
1 Timothy 4:7b, 8 AMPC
Train yourself toward godliness (piety), [keeping yourself spiritually fit]. For physical training is of some value (useful for a little), but godliness (spiritual training) is useful and of value in everything and in every way, for it holds promise for the present life and also for the life which is to come.
The Bible is little concerned with physical fitness and much more focused on spiritual discipline. Find me a spiritual person and I will show you one who every day exercises bowing, runs to God, stretches to believe, leaps to obey, subdues the mind to the Word, and wins every battle of their own will.
That person is ‘spiritually fit.’
