Build on Your Faith ~ Sunday Devotion

But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. Jude 1:20-21 (NKJV)

It’s spring. You’ve likely noticed new life sprouting up from the ground. 

There’s a new apartment building going up a few blocks away from me. I’ve watched it go higher and higher over the last several months. 

Any plant or new structure you see, started from the ground. Something had to be placed – a seed, a brick –  to make the rest happen. If we want the life Jesus has for us, here and for eternity, we must build on faith. The foundation of faith provides the stability we need to build the life God has called us to live. 

If you feel like you’re on a roller coaster with your health and fitness, you likely need to step off, start over, and build on faith. Yo-yo dieting, being “on plan” then “off plan,” going up and down on the scale, all happens when you don’t have a firm foundation for your fitness. For sustainable, lasting results you must first build your fitness on faith. This will provide the stability you need to consistently live a healthy life.

Next, pray and ask the Holy Spirit to guide how you care for your body. By doing this, you will gain the strength that you need to honor the body God has entrusted to you. 

Finally, allow God to love you. Open your heart to His love for you. This will give you the security you need to confidently embrace your age and stage of life. 

When you build on faith, you can stand against the challenges that face you. You’ll remain steadfast when temptation comes your way. And every day, when you spend time with the Lord, you will be reassured of His everlasting love for you. 

Action Step: Are you on the fitness roller coaster? Have you found yourself yo-yo dieting? God wants to help you put your feet on solid ground. It’s time to build your fitness on faith. Let God embrace you with His loving arms so you can embrace who and how He made you. 

Happy Sunday!
