In the conversation for Sunday, January 22, 2017, Pastors Stuart Nice and Kim Nowlin share with us how to steward our health, spiritually, mentally, and physically.
The Stewardship of Health
Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20, NIV)
- Spiritual Health
“Physical training is good, but training for godliness is much better,
promising benefits in this life and in the life to come.” This is a trustworthy saying, and everyone should accept it.
1 Timothy 4:8-9, NLT
- Mental Health
Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
- Physical Health
How we care for ourselves mentally and spiritually affects us physically. We must care for our whole person, not just our individual parts.
A note about the recording of the Sacred Reading:
The reader will pause between each of the four readings. The pauses have been left in the recording so that the listener can experience the rhythm of the gathering and even participate in the reading.
He gives strength to those who grow tired
and increases the strength of those who are weak.
Even young people grow tired and become weary,
and young men will stumble and fall.
Yet, the strength of those who wait with hope in the Lord
will be renewed.
They will soar on wings like eagles.
They will run and won’t become weary.
They will walk and won’t grow tired.
Isaiah 40:29-31, God’s Word Translation
