My major knee surgery was more than 14 years ago. The knee is now strong and doesn’t allow the knee cap to do crazy things that land me on my face in excruciating pain.
The core is now strong thanks to hardware but the surrounding flesh. Not so much. I did my PT but over the years, I didn’t keep it up. Slacked off.
Our walk with Christ can resemble a fixed knee. The core is solid and strong but as we move along, we can get lax if we so choose. The beauty of both is that we don’t have to let the surrounding flesh weaken.
And if we do, a little work gets those muscles working again and strength returns because the core is still solid. It remembers what to do. It desires to work correctly.
Christ is your core. He doesn’t change. While your flesh will fail, weaken, forget; Christ is the same. He’ll wait for you.
Pull out your bible, that forgotten bible study, and get back to your strength training. Spiritual fitness is always worth the effort!
Have you not known? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength. Isaiah 40:28-26
