Our Body

    When we think of our bodies as God's temple, it can open our eyes to some things. There are different ways to defile our bodies. The Bible refers to spiritual defilement more than physical or at least some would say. The truth is they can be one in the same. For example, sexual immorality that Paul speaks of in 1 Corinthians 6:18 can be a physical act as well as a mental thought. Just because Paul speaks of it as a inner sin does not mean it's not a physical one as well.

    While I can take this in many directions, I want our focus to be on our physical health. Our physical health effects our spirits. Since I have been letting my health go, there has been a noticeable negative effect in my ministry. It has almost come to a complete halt. That's a dangerous place to be because a lack of God will lead to sin getting back into our lives. Unhealthy lifestyles lead to death. Sin leads to death. You will find when you have one, you have the other. The Spirit of God dwells within us. While keeping sin out of our bodies is important, so is keeping our bodies  (God's temple) healthy.

1 Corinthians 3:16-17

    Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.

Exercise to keep God's temple strong.

Eat healthy to keep God's temple clean.
