In this blog, I wanted to encourage each one of you to continue to care for yourself and to be healthy. I also wanted to introduce Reflexology to you as a new therapeutic post-recovery treatment that is very effective toward overall great health.
One may ask 10 people as to why do they stay fit, and you will perhaps get 10 various answers. For this blog, I will offer you just five.
- It glorifies God
- You’re taking care of your body – His temple
- It’s being a good witness
- You’ll have more energy – be better equipped for what God has planned for you.
- You are forever learning about new treatments, equipment and training techniques.
It Glorifies God
The Holy Scriptures says in 1 Corinthians 10:31 that whatever we do we’re to do it to the glory of God. It also tells us in Isaiah that we were created and formed by God to glorify Him. This is our primary purpose in life – to glorify God. We do that when we care for our body and live a healthy lifestyle.
Our Body is God’s Temple and for Us to Care For
One scripture that reminds us that our body is God’s temple is 1 Corinthians 6:19-20. God’s Holy Spirit lives inside a believer. As we learn to become faithful followers of Messiah, God gives us His Spirit to help us live the kind of life He wants us to live. Since the Holy Spirit actually lives in us, Paul tells us in this verse that our body is His temple. Since God “bought” us with a high price, Jesus’ death, than we are obligated to care for our body which is His temple.
Acts 1:8 reminds us that we are to be witnesses for other people. People look for us to be models of the Christian faith. We ought to desire to live our lives in a way that represents our faith well. Taking care of our health is one way that we can be a good witness.
You’ll Have More Energy to Do God’s Work
Ephesians 2:10 helps us see that we are God’s masterpiece, created to do the good things that He had planned a long time ago for us to do. We all know that the more fit and healthy we are the more energy we will have. The more energy that we have, the more we can put into whatever task we are doing. We’ll also be better able to sustain ourself for the long haul.
You are Always Learning about new Treatments, Equipment and Training Techniques.
