STRIPPED DOWN

“Discipline yourself for the purpose of godliness” (1 Timothy 4:7).

What is the greatest hindrance to the nurturing of faith?  Is it not BUSYNESS; the junk-overload that seeks to choke meaning out of each day.  The solution is a stripped down version of ourselves.  The “discipline” mentioned in today’s text is a word that literally  means “naked.”  The greek “gumnos” gave birth to our word “gymnasium”.  It is a place of discipline, exercise, training.  Discipline is the key to stripping away the things that weigh us down.
