“Warming up to Working Out the Body of Christ” (part 1 of 2): Emotional Intelligence & your “Treasure Chest”

fitness-1677212_960_720If you’ve read any posts in this series, “Workout Wednesday”, you know that I am encouraging us to use physical exercise for small group Bible studies and Christian fellowship in a program of “W.A.I.T. Training”.  There are at least two biblical and practical reasons for this.  First, the Lord created us as a spirit in a body for relationships.  And the positive stresses in small group exercise can be used to strengthen all three.  Second, these are the same three areas in which most Americans have been crying out for help for a long time.  But before I demonstrate how you can do this with fellow believers at home, in a gym, on a track or trail, etc., you may need to “warm up” to the inter-dependence of body, soul, and relationship that I’ve described above. I believe this first of two videos can help you with that.  And, since the contents are cumulative, I recommend watching them in order.  If you’ve not seen the video in “Topic Tuesdays” that one also addresses the spiritual significance of emotion using the example of Timothy with several biblical reference.  You can access it in the menu above or by clicking here.

Even if you’re not interested in or able to do physical exercise, you may find them very helpful to understanding yourself and others for better relationships in any setting.  Please note that I originally produced these and other videos for Army personnel, hence the legal disclaimer at the beginning and contact information at the end.


The program, “W.A.I.T. Training” addresses 24 physical pictures of spiritual principles through a variety of supports:  training videos, devotional thoughts, Christian music videos8×10 color posters, free t-shirt designs, and more can be used for your personal devotions or small group Bible studies.
