Hi everybody, I am Jennifer Thompson. I am a life coach and a Jesus lover, so welcome to God Today. Today I want to talk about something that is very close to my heart. I have a passion for people, a passion for health and fitness, and helping people achieve weight loss transformations. I have been doing it for so many years and I have seen so many different people make amazing achievements. But, I often find that a weight loss transformation can be very similar to our own transformation in Jesus. I get a lot of people they want to workout, they want a change, they want it all in a day. They want to see 20 pounds lost all at one time. You have to put time into it, it takes a while, it’s a process.
I feel that in the Christian world, as well, that we think we can meet Jesus one time, we think we can get saved and that’s it. We never have to go back to church, we don’t have to get involved in Bible study, we don’t need to read our Bible every day. A statistic that is out right now is that 80% of Christians don’t even read their Bibles. To me, that just broke my heart. I know that means that so many Christians are lost, so many Christians are hurting because they aren’t getting their daily workout with Christ.
It really inspired me to spread this message that just as we train our bodies we have to learn discipline, we have to be dedicated, we have to be determined to get healthy, to get off of our medications, to lose that weight so that we can play with our children, we can be around for our grandchildren. Just the same way we need to train our spiritual relationship with Christ. We need to get on our knees and pray, we need to spend time daily with the Lord. Today I just want to pray that over you right now, that God would just come upon you, that He would urge you and pull you and usher you in to spend time with Him. Even if you don’t feel God doing that, that you would run to God instead. That you would lay yourself down at His feet and say, “Jesus, I love you, I am here, I don’t know what you want from me, but I just want you to know that I love you and I want to spend more time with you.” Thank you so much, God bless you all.
