Do you take health seriously?

Many Christians do not. While many will avoid excessive alcohol and tobacco use, it seems that most take no positive measures to maintaining physical health. In fact, many even make pious-sounding excuses for their gluttonous and sedentary lifestyles, saying, “What really matters is the health of my soul…” or “I am going to receive a new body anyways…”

If more Christians did take physical health seriously, they would repent of their latent dualism, realize how fearfully and wonderfully their bodies have been made, and give as much effort to maintaining their physical health as they give to maintaining their spiritual health.

God calls you to take health seriously:

“Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.” “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.” (3 John 2 and 1 Cor. 6:19-20)
