Big Caskets And Dead Bodybuilders!
"I'll probably die in a gym."
- Champion Bodybuilder (1)
Do you remember the old saying; "You can't take it with
you?" I remember it well!
I remember explaining to my dad one of the reasons I had such a passion for
bodybuilding. I explained that when I died, I would not be able to take anything
with me...fancy cars, a big house, money, nice clothes - none of it!
I would not be taking any of that material stuff with me when I died, so I
was going to focus on the one thing that I would be taking with me - my
As I think back to those days when I first got into bodybuilding, I remember
an ad that I would see in the bodybuilding magazines. It was an offer for
a t-shirt that had the words "Bury Me Massive"
printed on it.
Speaking of t-shirt sayings, how many of these do you recognize:
- "Just Do
- "Dianabol...Breakfast Of
- "Bodybuilders Pump Harder"
- "Life Is Too Short...Play Hard"
Philosophies such as these can leave an
indelible mark on your subconscious. They have the power to shape your views of
life. Consider what God's Word has to say about this:
Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit,
after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after

That "Bury Me Massive" t-shirt had an impact on my thinking.
Although I never bought the t-shirt, just seeing it advertised in the

spirit? When you die, will you be ready for what happens next?
And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the
- Hebrews 9:27 (KJV)
When you die will you be ready to be judged?
For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret
thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.
For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that
everyone may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath
done, whether it be good or bad.
- II Corinthians 5:10 (KJV)
You can be ready for judgment day by asking for God's forgiveness now.
Would you like to have God's forgiveness? Would you like Jesus Christ
to come into your life and make you a new person?
Please accept the
invitation to receive Christ as your Lord and Savior today.
