Healthy Christians

There are things that are basic and important to good health:

Proper food and exercise & rest.

A person who eats only sweets or starches—wouldn’t have good health.

Even a person who eats mostly protein is not healthy.

A person who doesn’t exercise, who lies around…loses use of himself.

Rest is important also to good health.

The same thing is true of healthy Christians.

It takes a well balanced diet and proper exercise and rest.

As a baby we start out on the Milk of God’s word.

I Peter 2:1-2 Therefore laying aside all malice, all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and all evil speaking, as newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby.

Milk-Faith, repentance, Baptism, resurrection of dead.

Consider the Christian who fed only on milk.

We must go on to stronger foods.

Heb 5: 12-14

Heb 6: 1-3

Consider the health of a Christian who only fed upon the Grace of God and Love and Mercy of God.

John 3: 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

Eph 2: 8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God

Rom 6: 23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Like a person who only eats sweet….

Works (person who feeds only on works), but works are necessary to a healthy faith.

(starches)

James 2: 17-18 Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead, but someone will say, “You Have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.

Judgements and righteousness

(Meats) (like to proteins)

The person who feeds only on judgements and condemnations is not a healthy Christian, but they too are necessary.

Matt 7

I Cor 11: 31-32

I Cor 5: 9-13

I Cor 6: 1-7

James 4: 11-12

Judge doctrines—try the spirits.

Conversation and manner of life.

(Vitamins)

Gal 5: 22-23

Just being a good person doesn’t make one a Christian.

Exercise

I Tim 4: 6-9

Rest---praise and meditation

Ps 104:33-34

James 5:7-9

Phil 4:1-5 “rejoice in the Lord always and again I say rejoice let your moderation be known unto all men the Lord is at hand”

When we get sick we go to the doctor.

When Christians get sick we need a doctor—Christ.

Some people put it off too long.

Given a shot of love, peace, understanding antibiotic (repentance)

Shot of meekness.

More drastic measures (hospital) tragedy in our life

Are you an ill Christian?

Then turn to the Christ today.
