 ‘Even As’ Health

by Dr. Asha S. Fields Brewer
Should physical Health be important to the Christian?  Should concern for our natural well-being even rank among our list of priorities?  If we take care of the Inner Man, won’t God just take care of the rest?  
Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

Natural health and spiritual health are intimately connected. Declining natural health can hold back a prosperous spirit, just as a declining spirit can hold back prosperous health. Believers are warned against such relationship imbalances in 2 Cor. 6:14. Just like unequally yoked oxen, when one component of the team is lacking, it disrupts the effectiveness of the unit as a whole.  The same is in regards to our health and our spirit. When we do not develop our health “even as” we develop our souls, we do them both a disservice.  
Seeing the importance of maintaining a healthy Spirit Man in tandem with a healthy Physical Man, purpose in yourself to develop them together.  Strive for that “even as” health, where service to God is not an excuse for poor health, but rather a motivating factor to do better. Intentionally seek ways to cultivate your temple for God’s service, and make your health a priority.
{Challenge for the Week}
Take one unhealthy physical habit and replace it with a healthy spiritual habit.  Do this for seven days.  Write down what you did and how it made you feel.
