God is just as interested in us having a strong body just as much as a strong soul.
Our bodies affect the way we live and we need to protect it.
God had given us a gift in our body, we should take care of that gift.
BUILDING A STRONG BODY Build Strong, Part 2 Daniel Plan Weekend January 10-11, 2015
THREE THINGS GOD SAYS ABOUT MY BODY 1. I am to MANAGE my body “Everything is permissible for me -- but not everything is beneficial. Everything is permissible for me -- but I will not be mastered by anything. Food for the stomach and the stomach for food -- but God will destroy both.” 1 Corinthians 6:12-13a
Just because something is permissible doesn't mean it benefits us, therefore should we do it?
Paul's says we have more important things to worry about then being selfish with our bodies.
2. I am to HONOR GOD WITH my body “The body is not meant for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body.” 1 Corinthians 6:13b “You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.” 1 Corinthians 6:20 “By his power God raised the Lord from the dead, and he will raise us also.” 1 Corinthians 6:14
Many think of our bodies as an old water bottle that we can throw away, but the Bible does not teach that. The Bible says our bodies will be upgraded, a new resurrected body.
3. I am to SERVE IN my body “Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God?”
Th Bible very clearly t aches that God takes up residence in our bodies with the Holy Spirit. He makes us a temple for the Holy Spirit. That is what God wants us to do with our body.
1 Corinthians 6:19 “I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God--thisis your spiritual act of worship.” Romans 12:1
The temple of our body is more sacred then any church building. So we can not be okay with damaging our bodies.
If we are to be like Jesus Christ in our bodies, what did Jesus Christ do in His body? He came to serve, so we are here to serve.
Are there opportunities you are missing because of what you have let happen to your body? The healthier you are the more you can do for God and serve Him.
The motivation to serve others can be a great motivator to change your body.
A new speaker came out, her name is Dee Eastman in charge of the Daniel Plan for Saddleback.
The idea is on using God's power, not will power.
THE FIVE HEALTHY HABITS THE DANIEL PLAN
5 essentials of the Daniel Plan, faith, food, focus, fitness and friends.
Mark Hyman came up with the Daniel Plan and he is now speaking.
He says food is the most powerful drug on the planet.
White flour raises your blood sugar levels higher then just sugar.
Sugar is what he says is the worst thing we can eat.
Know that sugar is a drug and know that is is addictive.
He says it only takes 10 days to break an addiction to sugar.
A study shows that the heavier we get the smaller our brains become. We can literally eat our brains to be smaller.
The Daniel Plan is designed to help our bodies and keep us healthier, it is a treatment for depression as well.
He says to always kill ANTs - Analyzing Negative Thoughts.
Just because you have a thought doesn't mean it is true, so do not believe everything you think.

FOCUS Transformed By the Renewing Of Your Mind “Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.” Romans 12:2 (NLT)
