Are you trying to make healthy changes in the new year? Not easy to do in a world that offers up sin on a silver platter. But we are called by God to become living sacrifices to Him. That means turning away from the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life that this world holds so dear. (1 John 2:16) The moment we receive Jesus as our Savior, the Holy Spirit indwells us. And knowing that our bodies are the residence of almighty God, should be all the incentive we need to take excellent care of ourselves. For there is no great calling than for our minds, bodies, and souls to be be used mightily by God in service to others and in building His kingdom.
