The word of day is “condition.” This is one that I hope you
hold onto for the duration of our season. God is all about the condition of our
hearts and lives. In the OT he reminds Israel of how they should live and what
the focus of following God should be. There is some stuff that lasts for
eternity and some that will not…
Be sure you know the condition of your flocks, give careful
attention to your herds; for riches do not endure forever, and a crown is not
secure for all generations.”
We condition you a ton over a period of time, which allows
you to compete at intense levels. The hard part though is once we stop
conditioning, our strength begins to waver. It is the same in our spiritual
lives. My question is: how does your spiritual conditioning fit into your
college life? The great news is that we can continually condition our hearts
and minds to become closer to the Father – that never has to end! My prayer for
you is that God would lay on your conscience the willingness to focus your energy
on lasting things that have eternal value. It’s gonna be a great weekend. Rest
up and we will see you bright and early.
