Your Body: Don't Reject It; Don't Neglect It BY RICK WARREN — JUNE 24 Saturday
“You made my whole being; you formed me in my mother’s body. I praise you because you made me in an amazing and wonderful way. What you have done is wonderful. I know this very well” (Psalm 139:13-14 NCV).
God made you in an amazing and wonderful way! Psalm 139:13-14 says, “You made my whole being; you formed me in my mother’s body. I praise you because you made me in an amazing and wonderful way. What you have done is wonderful. I know this very well” (NCV).
God sees you as a work of art. He does not look at you critically but with deep love. Our bodies are his workmanship.
Knowing that truth, what is the right attitude toward your body? Don't reject it, and don't neglect it.
Keeping your body in shape is a spiritual discipline. God created your body, Jesus died for it, and the Holy Spirit lives in it. Your body is connected to Christ, and it’s going to be resurrected one day. One day God will hold you accountable for how you managed your body.
But he doesn’t leave you alone to do that. He is with you every step of your journey to become healthy and strong.
