I Corinthians 6:19-20 Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.
I have been working out my body for the past 18 months. I have been working out my spirit, mind and soul for 33 months. In time, I came to realize how important it is to strengthen one’s entire being. God created a beautiful and complex machine in the human being. All of us are truly amazing. Praise God! I have come to realize that clean living through healthy habits strengthens not only ourselves but our relationship with God. It makes us better human beings and better servants. To optimize our relationship with God and each other, we need to strengthen our entire being. When I work out and break a sweat, I can feel the toxins leaving my body through my pores. I can feel the clean energy entering my body and the bad energy being expelled. At the end, I get such a calmness about me. I feel relaxed and energized at the same time. I find it to be the perfect state of mind to meditate on the Word and praise God. We must remember that our spirit is like a muscle also. We must work every part of our being. I have a friend who was and is spiritually strong, but she was physically out of shape. I wrote down a diet and exercise plan for her. She has already lost thirty pounds and I can see the change in her. It is amazing. I am so proud of her and I am overjoyed at her continued success. Hallelujah! Praise God! She is strengthening her entire being. I would like to see all of you do the same to the best of your ability. I guarantee you that you will feel so much better and your relationship with the Lord will be so much stronger. If you need help, write me. I would be happy to draw you up a plan to strengthen your entire being! It is important that we fill our minds with knowledge. We must also feed our minds and spirits with the Lord’s Word. Just as it is important to feed our bodies with healthy food, when we enrich our mind, body and spirit, we enrich our eternal soul and bring glory to God.
The situation that I am in has been both a blessing and a curse. It is most definitely one of the biggest challenges that I have ever faced. Yea, though I face such great adversity and the odds are overwhelmingly stacked against me, I remain calm and peaceful – for my Lord is with me and I have strengthened my whole being with His help. Amen! Our body is God’s temple. We should show our appreciation for the Lord by maintaining His temple to the best of our ability. That doesn’t mean you have to be a muscle-head or beauty queen. What it means is… you need to take care of what God has given you. Do not squander it. Do it for Jesus. When you strengthen your entire being, you will optimize both your natural and supernatural gifts; thus, becoming your optimal self. All areas of your life will improve, but do not do so for vanity’s sake. Do it for the sake of the Lord and your health. The Lord will bless you for it.
May God bless and keep you! May you live your life to the fullest! May you strengthen your entire body! Amen!
Love in Christ,
(a man who strengthens his entire being daily)
