In looking at health and wellness from a Biblical perspective, it's essential that we understand that we're three part being and that The Almighty is interested in the health and well-being of all three aspects. He is truly holistic in health, and His word provides instructions as to the maintance of all three areas so that we're able to stay in working order ready for Kingdom work!
We're spirit, soul, and body, and it's essential that we know and understand what the Bible says with respect to all three areas.
First and foremost we're spiritual beings. Each of us pocess the Divine breath of God that empowers and enables us to be animated and concious beings experincing what we know as life. As long as we have His eternal breath flowing through our physical vessals then we exist in a state that we know as living. In connection with the Father through His son Jesus, we're able to gain and experince eternal life. Thus, we become eternal beings when we accept the gift of eternal life through the saving work of Jesus Christ's death, buriel, and resurrection. We transition back to our pre-fall status of eternal beings when in relationship with the eternal Divine Creator through His unique Eternal Divine Son, Jesus. Otherwise, we're destined for eternal destruction and the wrath of G_D when not in relationship with His son.
Before the fall we were eternal beings of light, but after the fall of man, death and decay entered into creation. Jesus came to reverse this process offering the opportunity for eternal life to those humble enough to realize that they need a savior, and place hope and trust in Him realizing that he's able to save us from planned destruction. Thus, we're spiritual beings first, able to regain the pre-fall status of being eternal beings in connection with the Father through His son.
Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear. Matthew 13:43 And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light. And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him. Matthew 17:2-3 And it came to pass, when Moses came down from mount Sinai with the two tables of testimony in Moses' hand, when he came down from the mount, that Moses wist not that the skin of his face shone while he talked with him. And when Aaron and all the children of Israel saw Moses, behold, the skin of his face shone; and they were afraid to come nigh him. Exodus 34: 29-30 -- I believe that in the finality of the age the rightoues will literally shine as the Divine Creator shines his face on His Bride, the church, which I believe Adam and Eve did in their pre-fall state, which may be why they didn't know they were naked.
Secondly, we are living souls that have and experince emotions as well as are capable of logical intelligable and orderly thought. We have a mind that enables us to decipher truth, imagine, and create in addition to having the ability to feel, be intituative, and have perception beyond the senses. Like a mixer on a sound system, the various settings and nobs determine the different personalities, and temperments of various individuals. Thus, the second area of our being consist of who we are as individuals powered by the breath of God.
Thirdly, we are vessals or temples meant for inhabitation by the Spirit or prescence of God. We are like vessals of clay on the potter's wheel being molded and shaped into various forms waiting to be filled to the brim and more with the prescence of the Holy Spirit. Our bodies are temples made from the Earth, and the Holy Spirit of God connects with His Spirit that He has given each and everyone us provinding us with the ability to live. Our bodies are the temple of God and He likes a clean and pure house to dwell in.
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? 1Corinthians 6:19 -- Your bodies are the temple of G_D meant to be inhabited by His Spirit.
In conclusion, we are three part being consisting of Spirit, Soul, and Body. The Father is interested in the health and well-being of all three areas as exemplified by Jesus' ministry. Thus, it behooves us to make sure that we're doing all we can to ensure that we stay in good health and well-being for ourselves, families, communities, and fellow soldier in the Kingdom of God Army.
May the grace of Jesus be with you always!
