Jesus left us the holy spirit to helps keep the faith. The holy spirit is a comforter and a guide. When we do something that is not right, the holy spirit reminds us of our responsibility as believers. We have to make sure that our bodies show others that you can look good and stay respectful. We have to present ourselves acceptable to God.
When we do not take of our bodies, we not showing God that we appreciate what he has done for us. When we are sick, God heals us. Our bodies are uniquely built to heal our cuts, bruises, and broken bones. God would not have built us this way if he didn’t want us to take care of ourselves.
I smoke, drank, and didn’t sleep for years. This left me in ICU for a week and the hospital for another week. I also had a headache for six months. It is so important for us to find a routine for exercise, yoga, and rest. We only have one body, so do not take your body for granted.
Read these veres about our bodies:
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you have been purchased at a price. Therefore, glorify God in your body.
Romans 12:1 I urge you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy, and acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service of worship.
