Encouraging Words

Glorify God in Your Body – Encouragement #1

In 2015 the Women’s Ministry at Country Oaks Baptist Church is focusing on strengthening body and soul.  We offer the following encouragements as you seek to glorify God in your body:

healthy-livingEncouragement from a book:

from Rex Russell’s What the Bible Says About Healthy Living (in my own words)

Principle 1 – Eat the Foods God created for you.

Principle 2 – Don’t alter God’s design  (in how the food is prepared).

Principle 3 – Don’t be addicted.  Don’t let any food or drink become your God.

Encouragement from THE Book:

1 Corinthians 6:12 (NIV) “I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but I will not be mastered by anything.

Genesis 4:7 (NIV) If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at your door; it desires to have you, but you must rule over it.”

Note to self:

Jesus is my Master, not food.  Don’t give it to: “Inordinate desire, inner compulsion and undisciplined craving.” (concepts from Freedom of Simplicity: Finding Harmony in a Complex World By Richard J. Foster)
