Outward strength is not always an accurate indicator of our health. Some body builders die of heart attacks even though they look like they’re in incredible shape (Danielle Zickl, “This 25-Year-Old Bodybuilder Was Totally Healthy—Then He Died of a Heart Attack,” Men’s Health, October 2, 2017, https://www.menshealth.com/fitness/a19537116/bodybuilder-dies-of-blockage-to-heart/). Paul’s prayer (Ephesians 3) is that Christians will be inwardly healthy and rooted in the love of God. Only from that foundation can we do all that God has for us to do.
