PrayFit Devotional: Self-Made; March 26, 2013; Read: John 19
“Do you not know I have the power to have you crucified?” –John 19:10
You can’t pick up a newspaper, click on a website, or in many cases, look in the mirror without seeing someone claiming to be “self-made.” Look to any industry, and there’s someone who claims that they got to the top on their own; the Captain of a solo flight from rags to riches. Truth is, thinking we’ve made it to the top of anything alone is not only tough to swallow, it’s dangerous to digest. Like someone once said, “A self-made man runs the risk of worshiping their creator.”
Pilate took that risk. He raised his resume in the face of Jesus and beat his own chest. “Do you not know I have the power to have you crucified?”
Folks, of all weeks, this is one that should remind us that we are nothing without Him. Alone, you and I are self-made messes. And when it comes to our health, if we’re blessed to have it, it’s a gift. Even the motivation to maintain it is a gift. We can’t boast. You and I can’t generate any of it alone. So as we recalibrate our souls this holy week, be sure to embrace the real meaning of fitness; service. Let’s not get so caught up in the process of health that we forget about the purpose of it. As fitness-minded believers, we’ll make the greatest impact when we look in the mirror and see only God’s hands and feet. –Jimmy Peña www.prayfit.com/2013/03/
