The Who- Staying Healthy

Updated: Feb 29

Now, I'm no health guru, this post is not going to be like a women's' magazine where one page says to lose weight, the next says you must respect the person you are and the next be a page with a recipe for a fudgy chocolate cake!

So what has being healthy got to do with the Bible? With God?

1 Corinthians 6:19 'Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own;'

1 Corinthians 10:31 So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.

So, your body is not your own and with whatever you eat and drink, you should glorify God.

What does this mean?

I believe this means that you need to respect your body when eating.


How do we apply this?

  • Remember who provided all you eat, God is the provider of all, the Jehovah Jireh. When the slaves were in the wilderness God provided manna and quail, Elijah was provided meat brought by ravens, Ruth was able to gather all she needed, the oil and flour did not run out.

  • Eat healthily, so you may live a healthy, strong life. God knows how important food is, when Elijah felt suicidal he was given food and water and told to rest.

  • Refrain from eating bad stuff, I mean you can eat whatever you want and Peter's vision showed that God made a new covenant


What else does health compile of?

Physical Health- exercise

Exercise is really important, but unfortunately, it seems we are getting less and less of it. As I sit here writing this, I am stationary, not moving. The new technology and advances mean that we do not need to exercise as much. As you exercise, the heart becomes stronger and muscle mass increases. I have begun to worship God with exercise, using the multitude of YouTube Christian Zumba videos available, it is a different way to worship God.



social health- socialising

God knew that man should not be alone (Genesis 2:18), and so put him with a partner. Life not only is very boring when isolated but without communion with others, thoughts can run wild. There is a balance necessary, so we hear that some are more introverted. It is important to spend time alone with God (Matthew 6:5-6).

We will explore this further in a later blog


Thank you for reading this blog

I hope it is of benefit to some


A recap of the verses

1 Corinthians 6:19 'Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own;'

1 Corinthians 10:31 So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.

Genesis 2:18 It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.

Matthew 6:5-6 And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by. Other sources- FB Tim Vine Joke appreciation group!!
