today I’m gonna give you five reasons why Christians need to start caring about their health more we’ve been in it so long it’s normal they say when you want to know about the water don’t ask the fish that’s us in America when it comes to poor eating and obesity in particular in fact 3 out of 10 of Americans are obese today and 2016 that is insane the health issue the epidemic in America is a real issue it’s not a trivial issue that we can just throw by the wayside by saying maybe I should workout a little more maybe I should eat better we need to actually address this issue and I think for the Christians watching in particular this is a very big issue it’s a big issue for everyone but I think for us in particular we need to address a few things that when we open up our Bible the word that we claim to live by and we see what it says oftentimes the way we’re living our lives when it comes to our health does not add up with what we’re claiming to believe wholeheartedly so we must address these issues so I’m gonna give you five reasons Christians need to care more number one believers are supposed to be distinct that means we’re supposed to be distinct and belief and action that’s important we’re not supposed to look like the rest of the world the rest of the world has a significant wealth the rest of the world America has a significant eating problem food has become a king for a lot of Americans that’s not supposed to happen to us we’re supposed to be very distinct so when the rest of the world decides to eat at places like Golden Corral and McDonald’s three or four times a week or just destroy your wife’s delicious home cooking six seven times a week and you’re getting bigger and you’re going in for medication constantly that’s not distinct that’s normative you are just like everybody else in the world so Jesus actually says the Bible says that we’re supposed to be very distinct in our action and our behavior so when people look at us they’ll see us and go why is that person doing what they’re doing now I know you’re thinking that might apply to some of the you know the ceremonial and moral law in the Old Testament and the thing jesus said but also applies to the way God created the world so when people look at us as examples they should say well why is this person eating this way and and my response and your response should be I believe that God has called us has created everything good and has called us to eat the way he wants us to eat so that’s very important number two the food we eat today isn’t the same food that Jesus say I think that number one rebuttal to anyone wanting to eat healthiest especially when it comes to bread for instance is well Jesus ate bread well why shouldn’t we let me stop you right there the bread that we eat today is not the same so the Wonder Bread or the Safeway select brand that you have in your in your pantry that’s lasted for a week or two or even the Dave Mike’s killer bread or whatever it is that you buy that’s not the same bread that Jesus ate the bread we eat today has been crossbred five times over to to manipulate the texture the taste the consistency of the bread so that way people like us would would eat it more you probably know that a lots of the bread today is much softer or much more dense than some of the bread that jesus ate that’s because it’s been crossed bread and a studies show and I’ll include that down below that some of these some of these cross breedings actually have contributed to the rise in celiac diseases and gluten-free intolerance so our gluten intolerance rather so if you’re kind of wondering what’s up with everyone getting gluten allergies these days some of its fad but a lot of it is actually has a lot to do with the way breads been manipulating manipulated so the food that Jesus say isn’t the same as the food that we’re eating now so you can put your iron kid’s bread away Jesus did not turn break that up for communion number three our mental and physical performance is absolutely corrupted by the way we eat think about it you roll out of bed you grab some microwave oatmeal whatever you eat for breakfast you jump in your car you slug down coffee and maybe that’s seven thirty by then but by 10:30 11 o’clock you’re already starving for more food so you eat some more and then you have a late lunch around 1:00 and then you eat again at 3:30 they need to get at 6 and then you eat again right before you go to sleep and we’re just constantly eating and we’re so locked in we’re so connected to our kitchens that we can’t even live the life we’re supposed to live that’s because we’re on these glucose rollercoasters all day from all the different foods that we eat from the the junk food in the break room like again the doughnuts or the muffins to these good marketing granola bars that tell you they’re healthy but they’re actually packed with things like sugar and other thin grains and and high-fructose corn syrup and all of these other things I say all that to say that our physical performance and our mental performance is absolutely inhibited by the way we’re eating now as believers in Christ our goal is to proclaim the mission of Christ throughout the land now we can’t do that effectively if we’re constantly looking what time the next meals gonna start I’m convinced that many of us have never felt optimal health wise physically and mentally ever because we’ve been on this glucose roller coaster we’re dealing with brain fog constantly all day that we’ve never even felt good enough to do the mission that Jesus has given us Jesus didn’t walk around with brain fog all disoriented wandering with the next meals coming thinking about bread because it’s 2:30 so we can get rid of our 230 feelings by just eating healthy and you can skip the 5-hour energy just have something good and positive to eat for yourself and I’ll provide some resources below and you won’t have to deal with that issue number four our longevity is hindered so the last point we talked a little bit our quality of life this is our quantity of life all of us people who are in ministry people who are Christians have heard Paul say that we need to finish run the race well and finish the race well well how early do you want to finish that race do you want to do you want to finish the race at 4849 do you want to lose your memory with early onset dementia or Alzheimer’s at 55 56 years old which is happening because Alzheimer dementia are actually happening earlier in life due to things like fake sugars aspartame and some of the gluten the glucose that’s in the brain some of these things that are happening so how early do you want to finish this race I want to run the race as long as possible I want to live with my family as long as possible I want the people around me as long as possible so it’s important for us to put the correct and proper fuel in our body so we can laugh to the end my last point is this God cares about your body yeah he doesn’t care necessarily if you have ripped abs or if you can do 335 and your bench press but he does care about your body in fact Paul the Apostle Paul says something about our body being a temple to the Lord if our bodies a temple to the Lord then we shouldn’t blaspheme that temple by by destroying it with chemicals and things that God never created and God never intended it to be in our body and for those who say that maybe God doesn’t care about their body I would say I have a very hard time saying God doesn’t care about anything I think God cares about every single thing he’s ever created and that includes our bodies and so we need to be mindful of that thanks for checking out the show hey I wrote a blog on this this isn’t some greater detail I’m gonna include that in the show notes feel free to click around check out some other videos on the site
