“Get Physically Fit!”

Pastor Scott Oas | 01.17.16

“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)

“Seven Pillars of Health” by Dr. Don Colbert

• Water
• Sleep and Rest
• Living Food
• Exercise
• Detoxification
• Nutritional Supplements
• Freedom from Stress


1. Consider what I eat everyday.
“You may say, ‘I am allowed to do anything.’ But I reply, ‘Not everything is good for you.’ And even though ‘I am allowed to do anything,’ I must not become a slave to anything.” - 1 Corinthians 6:12

2. Stay active and exercise regularly.
“The lazy person is full of excuses, saying, ‘If I go outside, I might meet a lion in the street and be killed!’” - Proverbs 22:13

• Get an accountability partner.
• Choose an exercise routine you actually enjoy.
Schedule physical activity that best fits your schedule.
• Practice the “something is better than nothing” principle.

3. Take time to rest every week.
“Then (Jesus) said to them, ‘The Sabbath was made to benefit people, and not people to benefit the Sabbath.’” - Mark 2:27

4. Commit to reducing stress in your life.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” - Philippians 4:6-7
