021109 WeightI weighed in this morning at 179.2. It rained all day today so I didn’t go running but at around 10pm when the rain seemed to be stopping I grabbed a 20km bike ride.

Of course it started up again as soon as I got out and I felt what it meaning to be soaked to the skin. So no run and I skipped my Bowflex work out also.

I got a very nice thought from the scriptures this morning. I was reading Colossians chapter 1.

Col 1:4, 5 since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and the love which you have for all the saints; because of the hope laid up for you in heaven, of which you previously heard in the word of truth, the gospel

In the NASB verse 5 starts with the word ‘because’ and gives the verse quite a difference meaning than the ‘For’ that starts the verse in the KJV version.

What I got out of this seeing “we have a love for all the children of God because of the hope laid up for us in heaven.” The greater our hope the greater out love for the children of God.

This goes along with 1Joh 3:3 (KJV) “And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.” Here we see that ever man that has the hope of Christ’s return will purify themselves. The greater the hope the move we are going to be inclined to purify ourselves.

I am still starting my day with looking up to heaven through the bedroom window and asking God to increase the hope of the come of Christ in my soul. More hope — more love and purity.
