As a former athletes, business owner, trainer and born again Christian, I asked myself “How can I use the gifts God has empowered me with to fullfill his great commision. In Mathew 28:19, Jesus tells the disciples the Great Commision;
” All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, and teaching them all that I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
I realized that the Lord on September 12, 2009, saved me from my self so that He may be made great. That through my weakness and my life Chirst would be exalted. He kept the gym alive and has grown in over the last 4 years. This was the answer to my question. God gave me the abilities and relationships to use Sport and Physical Training to share is Name. 1 Timothy 4:8 tells us that :
For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.
- 1 Timothy 4:8
I knew now that I must share the Gospel of Jesus Christ through my gym, my talents, my relationships and my Life. I told myself ” How can I sit in a gym and preach the physical discipline yet preach little on spiritual discipline. The benefit of Holy Habits. I knew that I should show Christ in deed but how much more in word and deed. He gives me Life, and the gym to work. I must give back, I must not be weary or lukewarm but FIRM in the Faith. This is how GODSPEED 1 TIMOTHY 4:8 became a Sports Ministry whose sole purpose is to share the GOSPEL of Jesus Christ!
