PART I—Change-we clamor for change! For change to happen in any area of your life, whether it’s financial, vocational, educational, mental, or relational, you have to begin with the physical. why? Because your body affects your behavior. your muscle affect your moods and your motivation. Your physiology can actually affect your psychology. Romans 12:1 says, ” Therefore I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God for this is your true and proper worship. ” So what is your ” true and proper worship”? 1/3: Cleanse your body. The Bible says in 2Corinthians 7:1 ” Let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence for God. ” You cleanse your body by controlling what you allow in your mind through what you watch and listen to and in your body what you eat and drink. Change starts now.
PART II —This is the second part of the three part series on God’s prescription for a Healthy life. If you want to change your life, start with your body. We talked of changed and together with it is action. The problem with a living sacrifice is that it can choose to crawl off the altar. We do this all the time. We offer ourselves to God, and then we take ourselves back. This is not a once-for-all offer, you’ve got to work on it. Yes, you need to care for your body. Ephesians 5:29 says, ” No one hates his own body but feeds and cares for it, just as Christ cares for the church.” Keeping your body in shape is an act of worship to God. Start flexing your muscles and allow the blood to circulate freely- Exercise! Have a blessed day ahead!
PART III–“Therefore I urge you brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God for this is your true and proper worship. Romans 12:1 There are three things you can do with your body that the Bible says are acts of worship. 1. Cleanse your body. 2. Care for your body. 3. Control your body. “Each of you should learn to control your own body in a way that s holy and honorable. Thessalonians 4:4 ” Control your body so that it doesn’t control you. There is no reason to say.” I couldn’t help myself”! No matter what kind of change you want to make in your life, it will require energy. To have the energy to meet your goals, change has to start with your body.
