Risen Fitness is about maintaining your body for the Kingdom. It is an opportunity for you to become your best for HIM: Your Heavenly Father, who dwells on the inside of you! (2 Timothy 1:14)
When your perspective is in light of eternity, you experience gratefulness for the body He has given you. This naturally breeds good health. You put premium “fuel” in your “high performance” vessel, so it operates at maximum efficiency. You understand that this vessel is on loan to you, so you treat it better than if it was your own. You recognize the multitude of benefits of exercise, and you do them unto the Lord to thank Him for this gift!
You recognize that out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks (Luke 6:45), so you fill your heart with good treasures. You caution your eyes and ears, as they are gateways to your soul. (Matthew 6:22) You remain vigilant, as the things you watch on television, hear on the radio, or read in a magazine… you are inviting into your family room and into your heart.
In light of eternity, you recognize that God has “daily bread” He wants to give us. Out of gratefulness, the joy of knowing Him, and the desire to walk with Him, you start your day by putting on the full armor of God, and you ask Him to go before you. (Ephesians 6:10-18)
RISENfitness encompasses all three of these vital areas, to give you complete health. This is not only based on scripture (1 Thessalonians 5:23), but on the premise that “just as God exists in three parts (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit), so we also have three parts: spirit, soul, and body.” (Dr. David Stine, Metro Church) These three areas need to be in balance.
The “body” piece needs a balance of nutrition, fitness, and rest. However, we cannot neglect the other two parts, which is why RISENfitness also emphasizes FAITH. We hope that you enjoy the resources on our site, and we pray that you will seek HIM above all else. God bless you on your journey!
