Encouraging Words

Glorify God in Your Body – Encouragement #3

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:

piperEncouragement from a book:

from John Piper’s A Hunger for God (in my own words)

Hunger and thirst are signs of life.  They are relentless.  They never stop.  We will do almost anything in our power to satisfy hunger and thirst.  This is how we should pursue Christ.  Immoderately.  Food and drink need moderation.

Encouragement from THE Book:

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.  Matthew 5:6

For the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. Romans 14:17

Note to self:

Feel like you’re going insane? (Cravings will do that to you…)  Pray this:  “O Jesus, come into my soul, my mind, my body, my every brain cell, and help me contribute to your kingdom.” (Selwyn Hughes)
