Proverbs 4:20-22 Dear friend, listen well to my words; tune your ears to my voice. Keep my message in plain view at all times. Concentrate! Learn it by heart! Those who discover these words live, really live; body and soul, they’re bursting with health.
Step Five:- On completion of my list of sinful habits, I will confess them to God and to someone that I trust.
Luke 6:43-45 “You don’t get wormy apples off a healthy tree, nor good apples off a diseased tree.The health of the apple tells the health of the tree. You must begin with your own life-giving lives. It’s who you are, not what you say and do, that counts. Your true being brims over into true words and deeds.”
Spiritual health is more important than physical health. We work hard at our outward appearance, saying the right things, doing the right things. We want to remain acceptable in the eyes of others, but what is in our hearts is more important. The way we are when others can’t see us matters more to God.
Eventually if our lives are not right from the inside we will stumble in the recovery process and begin lose ground on our progress.
IF YOU STOP GROWING YOU START ROTTING
1 Timothy 4:12 Don’t let anyone put you down because you’re young. Teach believers with your life: by word, by demeanor, by love, by faith, by integrity.
Balance is required in both the physical and spiritual areas of your life.
Are you in shape both physically and spiritually? In this world much emphasis is placed on physical health, but spiritual health (Godliness) is much more important.
To develop spiritual health we need to practice Principle Seven every day.
‘Reserve daily time with God for self-examination, Bible reading and prayer.’
It is the only way to know His will for you and gain power from Him to live the life He has planned for you.
