Well, whats this have to do with the challenge? Just like neglecting the plant as it grows, if we neglect our bodies they will get sickly, hurt and maybe even wither up! But that's still not the area of concern. The area of concern is our soul. Just like the plant we must feed, water and take much care of our soul. Paying close attention to detail. This is how the soul stays healthy and grows to produce fruit. (Keep in mind that it is only by God's grace that we can and would even want to do this! In my unsaved state, I didn't want nothing to do with anything of God's, I was His enemy!)
You might say, "Well Clint, I pray, go to church and follow the Lord".
I would say, "If you only feed and paid attention to your plants once a week they would probably die".
You might say, "Well, I pray everyday".
I would ask, "Do you read you Bible everyday"?
You might say, "Not everyday or every once in a while".
I would say, "Prayer is two way communication between you and God and if all you are doing is praying (talking) to God and not reading His word (listening) to God, then its a one sided conversation!
The Challenge is this: pick up your
Romans 12:2 "And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God."
