– THE ULTIMATE BODY BUILDER
Amazingly, God said first the natural then the spiritual (1 Corinthians
15:46). Therefore we who aspire to be spiritual should first consider
the complex and intricate organism called the human body within
which God houses our spirit (James 2:26). Our body is the temple
in which God by His Spirit dwells (1 Corinthians 3:16; 6:19; 2
Corinthians 6:16). Sacrifice and offering God has not desired,
but a body He has prepared (Hebrews 10:5).
you honoring God with your body? Is your temple worthy of housing
the Lord’s glory and Presence? God does not live in buildings
made with hands. He wants to live inside of you (Acts 7:48-49).
A major part of your personal testimony as to your spirituality
is found in how you care for your temple. The world does not see
God, nor His Spirit (John 14:17). You are the living epistle that
society beholds before it considers the God that you profess (2
Corinthians 3:3). Does your physical body represent well the God
Are you projecting a God of strength or weakness? Your body is
a billboard for all to read. When the world that walks by sight
not by faith (2 Corinthians 5:7), sees you, what message do they
hear? When are your desires going to align and coincide with God’s
desires? God desires above all things that you be in health (3
John 1:2). Knowing this can you honestly say your health is your
top priority? Many seek first to financially prosper and in so
doing neglect their health. Ironically, they shall eventually
have to spend all their accumulated wealth to regain their health.
Wouldn’t it be easier to just properly prioritize health
before wealth from the beginning?
are God’s building (1 Corinthians 3:9). Physically what
kind of structure and edifice are you? Are you a rickety shack
deteriorating or are you a citadel fortified to endure the test
of time? How are your eating habits? Do you graze like a cow or
eat like a thoroughbred? Do you eat for pleasure or feed for purpose?
TO THE BODY AND ITS SIGNALS
your caloric intake causing pain or producing power? Is your body
groaning beneath a heavy load of toxicity or gleeful because of
proper diet and nutritional supplementation? These are vital questions
that we all must ask ourselves as we are stewards of the body
God has given us. Are you being faithful or foolish with the body
God has entrusted to you?
body is a complex organism that has the ability to heal itself
- if only you listen to it and respond with proper nourishment
and care. In spite of all the abuse our bodies endure - whether
through exposure to environmental toxins, poor nutrition, cigarette
smoke, alcohol consumption, or inactivity - they still usually
serve us well for many years before signs of illness may start
to appear. Even then, with a little help, they respond and continue
to function. Indeed, God created the body to wonderfully work
and fearlessly function (Psalm 139:14).
human body is the greatest machine on earth. Yet it remains the
most neglected and taken for granted piece of equipment we most
frequently use. Imagine how long your car would work if you didn’t
regularly service it, change the oil, put air in the tires, and
use the proper fuel. Sadly we give more time, care and attention
to our other machines in an attempt to prolong their life than
we give to our very own bodies. Is it any wonder people are ridden
with disease and illnesses and dying prematurely?
MACHINERY REQUIRING FUEL TO FUNCTION
of your body as being composed of millions of tiny little engines.
Some of these engines work in unison; some work independently.
All are on call twenty-four hours a day. In order for the engines
to work properly, they require specific fuels. If the type of
fuel given is the wrong blend, the engine will not perform to
its maximum capacity. If the fuel is of a poor grade, the engine
may sputter, hesitate, and lose power. If the engine is given
no fuel at all, it will stop.
fuel we give our bodies’ engines comes directly from the
things we consume. The foods we eat contain nutrients. These nutrients
come in the form of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, water, amino
acids, carbohydrates, and lipids. It is these nutrients that sustain
life by providing us with basic materials our bodies need to carry
on their daily functions.
nutrients differ in form and function, and in the amount needed
by the body; however, they are all vital to our health. Nutrients
are involved in all body processes, from combating infection to
repairing tissue to thinking. Although nutrients have different
specific functions, their common function is to keep us going.
part of the body contains high concentrations of certain nutrients.
A deficiency of those nutrients will cause the body part to malfunction
and eventually break down - and, like dominos, other body parts
will follow. To keep this from happening, we need a proper diet
and appropriate nutritional supplements. Brain function, memory,
skin elasticity, eyesight, energy, the ratio of lean to fat tissue
in the body, and overall health are all indications of how well
the body is functioning. With the help of the proper nutrients,
exercise, and a balanced diet, we can slow the aging process,
live stronger, longer, healthier lives.
we do not give ourselves the proper nutrients, we can impair the
body’s normal functions and cause ourselves great harm.
Even if we show no signs of illness, we may not necessarily be
healthy. We just are not yet exhibiting any overt symptoms of
illness. Most of us do not get the nutrients we need from our
diets because most of the foods we consume are cooked and/or processed.
Cooking at high temperatures and processing destroy vital nutrients
and enzymes the body needs to function properly. The organic raw
foods that supply these elements are largely missing from today’s
diet. Modern farming techniques and soil depletion also minimizes
and greatly lessens the amount of nutrients and minerals we intake.
are compounds present in plants that make the plants biologically
active. They are what determines a plant’s color, flavor,
and ability to resist disease. Researchers have identified literally
thousands of phytochemicals and also have developed the technology
to extract these chemical compounds and concentrate them into
pills, powders, and capsules. These are called nutraceuticals
- the newest type of dietary supplement.
body’s nutritional needs are as unique to you as your appearance
is. The first essential step toward wellness, therefore, is to
be sure you are getting the correct amounts of the proper nutrients.
Eating a healthy diet and supplementing your meals with appropriate
nutrients will help to assure that your organs, cells, and tissues
get the fuel they need to operate properly.
YOUR BODY A TUNE-UP. ALLOW YOUR BODY TO HEAL AND INVIGORATE ITSELF.
a personal fitness trainer and nutritional consultant I take great
pride in caring for my body. Being at my personal best physically
is important to me. The time allotted toward exercise and good
health is an investment not an expense. Eating healthy costs no
more than eating poorly. The question is where do you want spend
your hard earned money?
prefer to daily invest in good health and nutrition rather than
have to dig myself out of an early grave with enormous doctor
and hospital visits, coupled with synthetic pharmaceuticals that
serve only to weaken my immune system and make me more dependent
upon doctors. Sadly many are digging themselves an early grave
with their fork in hand and the wrong foods on their plate. The
results and rewards of regular exercise and proper diet speak
for themselves: greater confidence, higher energy level, increased
endurance, peak performance, keen mental clarity, self-awareness,
freedom of expression, spiritual sensitivity, and creativity.
cares more about you than you. Why not invest in yourself before
extending yourself outward and spreading yourself too thin. We
all have a breaking point. Wouldn’t it be far better to
build proper health than experience a devastating breakdown because
of the lack of it? Give your body a tune-up enabling it to heal
and invigorate itself.
FAT CHURCH AND NATION
a minister to Christ’s body the Church and the nation within
which I live, I am embarrassed when I see how fat the body of
Christ is and greatly concerned with the staggering levels of
obesity in the United States. We are a nation overfed and yet
starving from malnourishment. America is as guilty as Sodom for
its gluttony, laziness and pride (Ezekiel 16:49).
of our Pastors and Priests would do well to go on a juice fast
for a week and exercise. The "fullness of the blessing of Christ"
isn’t talking about a bulging belly and out-of-control waste
line (Romans 15:29). "Like people, like priest" (Hosea 4:9). It’s
time preachers in our pulpits gave attention to their health lest
their church members follow in their fellowship’s father’s
footsteps toward becoming fat. A little less fat around the mid-section
would make for some more energized prayer sessions rather than
an overly burdened skeleton dropping into a deep sleep during
the hour of prayer.
world is a dim reflection of the church. Jesus said we His people
are "the light of the world" (Matthew 5:14). Is it any wonder
when we don’t walk in the light as Christ is in the light
that the world around us remains in darkness? Judgment therefore
will begin in the house of God as it is our responsibility to
be a voice to the nation and lead them out of darkness (1 Peter
4:17). Jesus came to give us life more abundantly (John 10:10).
We however in the body of Christ have acted as if Jesus came just
to give us church. Thus we have become inactive and fat both spiritually
and physically. Is it any wonder the Church cannot fulfill its
missionary mandate to the nation and the world. It is too fat
to get off of the pew! Jesus rose from the dead, but we
with our constipated colons cannot get out of bed.
COUNTRY, HEALTHY ECONOMY
industries and lobby groups (Tobacco, Alcohol, Pharmaceutical,
Doctors/Health Care) prove that our governing body does not support
a healthy country but rather a healthy economy – that at
the expense of its peoples health. The typical American diet is
devoid of fruits and vegetables. Living foods are not eaten regularly.
We are what we eat. Therefore our people are sick, suffering,
and shortening their lifespan as they indulge in processed, canned,
cooked and frozen foods.
gave dietary laws to Moses in the Old Testament for the explicit
purpose of securing our health by reason of outlining guidelines
for good health and appropriate foods to eat. This is not about
a rigid legalistic adherence to the law which is good and useful
(Romans 7:12), but rather an acknowledgment and voluntary willful
implementation of that which is physically beneficial to ourselves
(1 Corinthians 6:12). We should not be brought under the power
of any food, neither should our God be our belly (1 Corinthians
10:23; Philippians 3:19).

IN YOUR HEALTH TODAY, OR PAY DOCTOR’S TOMORROW
be deceived: God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man sows, that
shall he also reap" (Galatians 6:7). The Lord is for your body,
but is your body being sanctified and set apart to glorify the
Lord? (1 Corinthians 6:13) Christ the head of the Church,
His body, gives the utmost attention to His body to spiritually
fill it with all that is needful for it to fully and properly
function at its best (Ephesians 1:22-23). When will you be a good
steward of the gift of God and do the same with your physical
body? Eventually we shall all appear before the judgment seat
of Christ to give an account for that which we have done with
our body (2 Corinthians 5:10).
don’t try to pinch pennies and save dollars to the neglect
and loss of your own health or that of your loved ones. Doctors,
hospitalization, nursing homes, Hospice, funeral homes, and caretakers
aren’t any less expensive. "I call heaven and earth to record
this day against you, that I have set before you life and death,
blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both you and
your seed may live" (Deuteronomy 30:19). You have no guarantee
of tomorrow. Maximize your life today and that without regret.
Love yourself like no other.
