Renew and Be Physically Healthy
“Transformation is more than just putting information in your head. It’s about living out what God is working in you.” Rick Warren
Just Be-“We are human beings, not human doings, and we’re at our best when we’re becoming” Mike Moore
There is a saying: “A healthy Spirit lives in a healthy Body” When you feel good about your body, your spiritual health also excels. My relationship with God feels more solid when my body is healthy. Today we want to focus on how we can BE more Physically Healthy.
Psalm 46:10-“Be… still and know (recognize, understand) that I am God.”
Romans 12:2-“…And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”
Open in prayer.
1 Cor 6:19-20 (Message) “Or didn’t you realize that your body is a sacred place, the place of the Holy Spirit? Don’t you see that you can’t live however you please, squandering what God paid such a high price for? The physical part of you is not some piece of property belonging to the spiritual part of you. God owns the whole works. So let people see God in and through your body.”
We read in 3 John 1:2: ”…and I pray for good fortune in everything you do, and for your good health that your everyday affairs prosper, as well as your soul!” May it be true that we prosper; soul, body and spirit. These three needs to be in balance. Many years ago a group of spiritual leaders believed that a man’s spirit and body is divided from each other and it doesn’t matter what you do to your body because your spirit will not be affected. We can’t live our lives in compartments. God gave us a body, soul and spirit and we need to live in balance in all three. Study the following scriptures and talk about them:
- Psalm 139:13-14 -Look you are fearfully and wonderfully made
- 1 Cor 6:14 -Invite God into your physical renewal program
- 1 Cor 6:19 -Our bodies are a temple to God
- 1 Cor 3:16 -God’s Spirit lives inside of us
- Why is it so difficult to take care of our physical health?
- What can you do this week to start taking care of your body?
Pray for one another
