Pastor Morris expounds on three important points related to our bodies and how we care for them:
- Our bodies belong to God
- Gluttony is a sin: it is not a weight issue- it is our thoughts and attitudes about food
- Give your body to God
When we contemplate that our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit, and belong to God, we realize that God is challenging our attitudes about food, eating, and exercise. Do we really exercise temperance and self-control in this area? We can be free of food addictions and gluttonous thoughts and deeds by yielding to God in this area of our lives, and it can be truly liberating. We can learn to eat to fuel our bodies, and not to merely gratify fleshy desires.
May the Lord speak to you personally as you watch this video, and may you have ears to hear and a heart to be fully dedicated to the Lord related to your eating and exercise habits. May you continue to discover, unlock, and live your Godly destiny!
