Hodijo posts several images each week using #forthejoyoffit because we believe there’s more to fitness than workouts and looking great. We believe exercise and health are part of the “abundant life” Christ has promised us.
The Bible isn’t primarily a book about physical fitness, or even this physical world. It’s a spiritual book that reveals God to us. Yet the Bible has a lot to say about healthy habits, healthy mindsets and healthy relationships. We’re encouraged to care for our bodies both physically and morally because God lives within us.
“Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.” 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
More of life opens up to you when you’re healthy and fit. You have more energy for your family, job and ministry. You reduce the risk of crippling illness and increase your mental and physical resilience. Plus there is a specific joy that comes with being a good steward of the life and body you were given.
It’s a simple idea—live abundantly in a healthy body. Hodijo hopes to encourage everyone in that pursuit #forthejoyoffit.
