Developing character

On monday I went to the gym as usual. For three quarters of an hour I was the only person in the women's part of the gym. It was great. There was only 6 people in the other part of the gym, everyone else had the morning off. One of the instructors told me that 10000 people belong to this gym and only 2000 people go. Isn't that amazing 8000 people paying good money to the gym but not going! I wonder if they think they will get fitter just by joining? Its a lot like being a Christian I think. Many many people call themselves christians, but only a few read their bibles every day and pray, but they think by just belonging to a church and going along occasionally that is enough. It is not enough, regular daily contact with God is what will build God's character into our lives, just like regular daily attendance at the gym will help us to get fit!
