But reject those myths fit only for the godless and gullible, and train yourself for godliness. For “physical excise has some value in every way. It holds promise for the present life and for the life to come.
There is teaching that is “of the world” and not from God. Not everything you are taught will be truth and you have a responsibility to sort out the truth from the lies. The Holy Spirit is with you. The training to be godly is a life-long journey. You must learn how to be both driven by Christ’s example and how to rest in Him. Through our training we further surrender to Christ. Physical training is of value because your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit – after all, we are made in the image of God. The gain from that effort however, is a mere shadow compared to godliness.
