Remember This:  

The short answer: You are built for SERVICE.

God built you for service in His Kingdom.  God built you for service in carryoing out His Mission.

In The GYM - God You Mission - Service is what we trainfor , and it is how we train.

Minister = attend to the needs of others = Service

Fitness = quality of being suitable to fulfill a particular role or task

Are You FIT?  

To be fit is to be of a suitable quality, standard, or type to meet the required purpose. It is not enough to say that you are fit. It is not enough to appear to be fit.

Fitness requires Faithful action.
Fitness requires Intentional action.
Fitness requires that you remain Teachable.

Are you fit?

This is a question I continue to ask myself. I never really feel like I am fit to be a minister for Christ, but I continue to trust that He is making me what He wants me to be. Nevertheless, I use this question to examine myself periodically going to God and asking Him if I am fit for His purpose

That's a very relevant thought, Taurus - What AM I built for?? I know when I receive insight in God's Word, it makes my morning. When I can share that with someone else, it makes my day. Where the rubber meets the road, is when what I've learned has translated into obedience - that is what makes my life, my character. This is where i need building up. Psalm 37 says, 'delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart'. This came back to me as I was reading John 14: 13, 14. " And I will do whatever you ask in my Name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask me anything in my Name, I will do it." The questions that comes back to me is,(like you), 'what do I want?' Is my heart truly delighting in the Lord, in such a way that my desires are reflecting His? I think that if I were more 'fit' these questions would not be an issue. Im looking forward to growing in intentionality and faithfulness. Thanks for steering me in this direction.
