The Gracious Gift of God
Health is the gracious gift of God, and is preserved best by choosing the most healthful lifestyle possible, empowered by the Grace of God. The acronym NEWSTART embodies the most important aspects of a healthy, God centered, lifestyle and by following it we maintain the temple of the Holy Spirit.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20
19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's."
Proper nutrition is the foundation of good health and recovery.
Action is a law of life. Muscle tone and strength are lost without exertion, but exercise improves the health of body, mind, and spirit multiplying vitality and health.
Water Because the body is 70% water, keeping well hydrated and knowing what and when to drink are essential to health.
The sun is the established energy source ordained by God to sustain the cycle of life for plants and animals. Sunlight is supremely important for the body’s metabolism and hormonal balance.
Using good things moderately and avoiding the bad is obviously wise, yet often hard to practice. Temperance can be neither bought nor earned, but is rather an important gift of God, a “fruit of the Spirit” (Galatians 5:22, 23).
The body’s most essential resource is air. More important than food or water, proper breathing and pure air are fundamental to good health.
Restoration requires rest because sleep allows the body to renew itself. Many types of rest are important for health, but the sweetest rest follows labor.
TRUST IN GOD
Trust In Divine Power Directly linked to physical health (Proverbs 3:5-6), trust in God is a gift leading to right choices.
