"May God himself, the God who makes everything holy and whole, make you holy and whole, put you together-spirit, soul, and body-and keep you fit for the coming of our Master, Jesus Christ." 1 Thess. 5:23 (The Msg)

Three Unhealthy Attitudes About The Body

• You can reject your body

• You can perfect your body

• You can neglect your body


• My Body was Created by God

"You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit them together in my mother's womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! It is amazing to think about." Psalm 139: 13,14 (LB)

• The Body was Worn by God

"And Christ became a human being and lived here on earth among us and was full of loving forgiveness and truth." John 1:14 (LB)


We're in a new series that I'm called The Life Coach. It's all about how the ultimate life coach, God, can help you revolutionize your resolutions this year by moving you from will power, which doesn't work, to His power, which does work. We talked last week about how God cares about every area of our lives. He wants to help you achieve spiritual, physical, financial and relational fitness this year. Then we unveiled last weekend a practical tool to really help you with that. It's the new website we've been working on for a long time called and the response has been nothing short of amazing. We had over one million hits in the first week on the website. People from 40 different states logged on. Even a soldier from Iraq wrote us. We had hundreds of letters come in. It's just been amazing. This one says, "The website is fantastic. It's been the best part of my day every day since Monday. The website is inspiring." This one says, "Thank you for this wonderful website and the work you put into it. This is exactly what I needed and have looked for. I've done online weight loss programs before and I've also searched for online Bible studies, but this is so perfect for me because it combines it all. Today's study was truly a blessing to me. Thank you so very much." This one says, "This is a really cool internet site. It's nice to know that thee is something out there for those who are really trying to grow in every aspect of their life. This is a total God thing for me because I've needed to find something like this for months. If you haven't logged on to you ought to go for it. Tell friends about it. It's free.
