Change Your Diet

“Glorify God in your body.”                                    1Co 6:20 NKJV

 

One pastor writes: “I stood on every healing Scripture in the Bible. Finally I got so sick that I had to be rushed to the hospital. There they discovered I had five arteries completely blocked and scheduled me for a bypass surgery. When I came through it, I started questioning, ‘How could this have happened to me? I’m a pastor. I believe that God heals. I’ve prayed for others and watched Him heal them.’ Then I remembered! I’d been warned repeatedly that my cholesterol and sugar levels were too high. I needed to change my diet, but I wouldn’t listen. I was addicted to fried foods and fatty foods. They were so tasty I couldn’t give them up.” Keep reading—your life could depend on it!Jesus said the children of this world are wiser than the children of light (See Lk 16:8). The media and medical establishment are warning us daily to watch what we eat, yet often the church is silent. Tobacco, alcohol, and drugs can kill you, but so can eating the wrong food! Paul writes: “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” (1Co 6:19-20 NKJV). You have an assignment from God, and a responsibility to stay healthy and fulfill it. Your body is the temple in which He dwells, and the instrument He uses. So seek to “glorify God in your body” each day.
