The Bible often uses metaphors of strenuous physical activity to describe the Christian life: running, racing, boxing, fighting, and other similar expressions. What makes these metaphors so applicable? Because just as with physical fitness our spiritual fitness takes time and concentrated effort to produce endurance.
On this episode of the Reasonable Theology podcast our guest is Pastor Isaac Adams. Isaac serves as a pastor at Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington, D.C. and he is the author of Training: How Do I Grow as a Christian?
Listen as we talk through the importance of spiritual disciplines in the Christian life, as well as the types of personal and public training that make us more spiritually fit. We’ll also discuss tips for staying motivated and how we can help others in their Christian walk.
