The Bible clearly says that “whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” Galatians 6:7.
It is not logical to poison your body and blood with unhealthy foods and still see yourself in good health. The reason for keeping good health is because Paul writes, “What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.” 1 Corinthians 6:19, 20. Unless you realize the worth and value of your body you will not eat “everything” that motivates you lower passions. There is a reason why your brain is above the stomach. Not everything that’s sweet to the mouth is pleasant to the stomach, sometimes the stomach gets irritated. The food we eat is related to our health. We eat food not because we are hungry but because our bodies need nutrition.
Most of us are fond of digging our graves with folks, spoons and knives. We only come to realize the reality of this statement when we see people die of cancer and other lifestyle diseases. I call them lifestyle because no virus, bacteria or plasmodium causes them.In our clothing stores we therefore don’t look for large and extra-large clothes rather “relaxed” clothes. Surely brethren, are we not inheriting the diseases that God promised Israelites never to be among them if they hearken unto his voice?The link that we miss is the health laws that people of God are to leave by.
We have switched from visiting fast food restaurants once a while to visiting these places for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The things we are told are impossible are not always impossible. I don’t fault anyone for what they believe but sometimes what a person has been taught is not always the truth. If over 24000 tonnes of aspirin are taken annually in the US and over 5 billion sleeping pills are consumed annually, is it still normal? We tend to trust physicians more than God which should not be the case.
Disease is not a result of old age, from a Christian perspective; disease is as a violation of the laws of health. For every symptom, there is a cause and if you find the cause, you find the cure. The will of God to the humanity is that we prosper in health.Let us eat well to stay well and have the strength to spread the word of God far and wide.Make your health a priority.
