Making Gains-Bro, Do You even Lift?
Lift Your Influence
Romans 12:3-11

Jeff Martin

Do You even lift Bro? Is an expression used on body building and fitness forums to question the legitimacy of someone's fitness expertise or weight lifting routine. This is the time of Year where we are all about making improvements and contemplating how we can be better. As believers we need to work hard at being a genuine follower of Jesus. But if we are honest many of us are not faithful to what is necessary to succeed in the faith. We have become lazy, fat, weak and spiritually obese Christians. We need to get off the pew and into the Bible. We need to become students again and then we need to go out of the classroom, and begin to apply what we have learned. To make disciples, to show and share the love of Jesus in real and tangible ways, to do some heavy lifting. The reason why there is such a disconnect between the real world and the majority of people in the church today is because if Christians really had to lift heavy weight… they’d collapse. Bro…do you even lift? Lift Your Influence – Recent studies have found the main factor holding people back from improvement was not willpower, but friend-power. It's hard to break free from the drag of a friend’s bad influence. New life requires new influences. Come learn how to get friend-power working in your favor.


Haciendo Avances: ¿Siguieras Levantas Pesas, Bato?
Levante Su Influencia
Romanos 12:3-11

¿Siguieras levantas pesas, bato? Esta es una expresión (en Ingles) en los foros de desarrollo muscular y habilitación física, para poner en duda la legitimidad de la destreza de habilitación física o rutina de levantar pesas. Este es el tiempo de año donde todos estamos haciendo mejoras y contemplando cómo podemos ser mejor. Como creyentes necesitamos luchar fervientemente para ser seguidores genuinos de Jesús. Pero si somos honestos muchos de nosotros no somos fieles a lo que es necesario para tener éxito en la fe. Hemos llegado a ser perezosos, gordos, débiles, y espiritualmente Cristianos obesos. Tenemos que bajarnos de las bancas y entrar en la Biblia. Necesitamos ser estudiantes de nuevo y entonces salir del salón de clase, y comenzar a aplicar lo que hemos aprendido, para hacer discípulos, para demostrar y compartir el amor de Jesús en maneras reales y tangibles y para levantar pesas fuertes. La razón por la cual hay tanta desconexión entre el mundo real y la mayoría de la gente en la iglesia hoy es porque si los Cristianos tendrían levantar lo pesado, se desplomarían. ¿Bato, siguieras levantas pesas? Levante Su Influencia –Estudios reciente han encontrado que el factor mayor que impide a las gente al mejoramiento no era la fuerza de voluntad, pero la fuerza de amigo. Es difícil librarse de la mala influencia de un amigo. Nueva vida requiere nuevas influencias. Venga aprender como puede usar la fuerza de amigo a su favor.
