Welcome, Friends!

4 Seests in Paradise
Healthy YOU!


This page is being created to hopefully encourage readers (and MYSELF!) in seeking and maintaining a healthy, God-pleasing physical lifestyle. I have links to some excellent nutrition experts whose books, vitamins, and natural food products I have benefitted from. But I want this to be much more than a links page...I want to share my heart-felt and Bible-based convictions with you about taking care of our bodies, which are the temples of the Holy Ghost!



Take a moment right now to read these verses:

Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.
I Corinthians 3:16 & 17

That passage of Scripture was a real challenge to me. I always want to claim the promises of God's Word, but how often I forget that the LORD desires our obedience before He gives us rewards! I'm not talking legalism, because I'm not talking about soul salvation, which is through Christ's blood atonement for our sin. When I say "obedience brings reward", I'm talking about a Christian's obedience to God's Word bringing REWARD, PROMISES FULFILLED.

Now, look at this verse with me:

Whether therefore ye eat, or drink,
or whatsoever ye do,
do all to the glory of God.

I Corinthians 10:31

Another challenge! Can I honestly say before God that what I am eating, drinking, and doing to this temple He has entrusted me with to serve and honor Him with is glorifying Him? Wow. I take that verse to mean that I need to know what foods He wants me to eat and what beverages He wants me to drink as important, though usually the "whatsoever ye do" is what we concentrate on.

So, what exactly does God's Word say about our physical bodies?

First of all, let me tell you how I view God's Word *_* We are told in II Timothy 3, All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

I'll go ahead and state for the record that I believe that the Bible is God's Word, and that from cover to cover it is filled with His instruction for us. It's sad...we would believe a doctor's prescription if he told us what foods to eat and not to eat, but why do we as Christians fuss at God about the foods He says in the Bible that His people are to partake of and abstain from? He has told us what to abstain from and what is actually created for food in verses throughout the scripture, and I want to bring some of them to mind here as a challenge & encouragement in our diet.

Food and drink are only part of what we need to care for our physical selves though. SO, when this study is "complete", we will have included what the Bible has to say on several topics, listed below *_*



AIR/BREATH,
LIGHT,
God-Pleasing FOOD,
WATER,
EXERCISE,
THOUGHTS/GODLY MEDITATION



I will be covering each of these topics over time, hopefully encouraging each of us from God's Word to truly find out what we can do with our physical selves to glorify Him and be a good testimony to the lost around us!
