4 Reasons God Wants Us To Be Healthy
1. It Glorifies God
God wants us to feel good and to have strong mental health. When we choose to consume healthy foods and make healthy drink choices, we are glorifying God. So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. 1 Corinthians 10:31. Glorifying God is about knowing when to stop practicing restraint when it comes to food or beverages demonstrates seeking fulfillment in him, rather than trying to be physically filled with other things.
2. You're Taking Care Of His Temple
Taking care of our health reflects a respect for God;s creation. He made us in his image; therefore,,we should strive to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Our decisions to take care of our bodies reflects concern for him.
Discipline indicates wisdom, In this case being healthy is a reflection of adhering to physical and mental training, to be stronger in Christ.. For while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of valve in every way, as it holds promises for the present life and also for the life to come. 1 Timothy 4:8
3. Being Healthy Presents A Good Witness
The Bible tells us we are to be witness for other people. Other people will be able to see that God wants his people to be healthy and be in great spirits so much so God's love bounces off us to others everywhere we go. We are representatives of the Christain faith. We are role models for the younger generations and need to live our faith well by staying healthy.
4. You Will Have More Energy
Being healthy leads to more energy. Having more energy lends itself to being able to share Christ's message with more people. Having more energy also reflects that things are good within us. Beloved I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul. 3 John 12. We are better equipped to do God's work when we are healthy.
Living a healthy lifestyle is pleasing to God.
