The word is my weights
Christ is my spotter
It is in Him
That I am made stronger
Today in church, my pastor pointed out this guy who had muscles and said something to the affect that those muscles will one day whither away, but when we build ourselves up in the word, that’s something that will never die.
And while I agree, and see his point that sometimes we spend so much time perfecting the outer appearance and neglect our spirit, I also saw it another way.
It made me think of someone that I have grown up with. I know they’re not perfect, but because I admire them, it makes me see muscle as a metaphor.
A physical representation of spiritual strength.
