I have recently added a new category on this site. The category is simply entitled, “health”. But, you may ask, “What does health have to do with knowing Christ?” After all I have created this site to record thoughts and ideas on knowing Christ personally. Well, the Bible tells us, “Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself.” 1 Cor 6:19 (NLT) If you are a believer, you and I are indwelt by Christ himself. God no longer and never has desired to dwell in a building made by human hands. He has always desired to dwell in the hearts of men and women and now this is possible through the death and resurrection of Christ. So the apostle Paul points out that our very bodies are no longer our own. We have to remember that we are now the temple of the Holy Spirit as well.
I know that many men love to compartmentalize their lives. I have been one of those men who practiced this concept. There is a spot for relationships, career, leisure, church, God, etc. These categories are all separated and have no connection with one another in the typical male mindset. Yet, this is not a proper perspective to hold to in life. For a believer if we are to make Jesus our Lord, then he has to be Lord over every area of our lives and not just the one’s we would choose. This would include the area of our health. So I have included this as a category to this site so that I can also record thoughts and ideas that surround my journey to living a healthier lifestyle.
