Taking charge of your physical health

LAKESHORE FRIENDS—

Taking care of the bodies that God gave us can be a challenge.  Maintaining a proper diet, exercise routines, managing stress, and getting enough rest does not comes easy for everyone.  For me, it takes a lot of intentional effort to remain physically healthy, especially as I enter the latter half of my fifties. 

But what if we began to think differently about our bodies?  What if we fully understood how for the Christian, our bodies are the dwelling place of the Holy Spirit?  What if we began to understand that Jesus bought our bodies with His life, and that our bodies really belong to Him?  Would that change the way you take care of the only body you have? 

I hope you’ll join us this Sunday as we kick off a new series called Taking Charge Of Your Life. We'll explore what the Bible has to say about physical health, emotional health, and relational health, and we'll provide some tools to help you close the gap between who you are today and the person God created you to be.

 

"What if we began to understand that Jesus bought our bodies with His life..."

 

Also this Sunday — We'll begin our annual Baby Bottle Drive to help Caring Choices, one of our local missions partners that serves women and families facing unexpected pregnancies by helping them to choose life over abortion.  You can get involved by picking up an empty bottle from the Caring Choices table on your way out the door, filling it with spare change or cash, and returning it by Sunday, March 3.  It’s that simple.

Make a great day!
Frank D.
