What does Christianity have to do with health? Everything! Christianity is not a culture or just a belief system. It is a vibrant exchange between you and the Creator of the Universe, the Lord Jesus Christ. Just as if we would go to a doctor if we were ill we need to go to Jesus daily to maintain not only our spiritual health but also our emotional and physical health.
Imagine the possibilities of having an appointment with the all knowing God at anytime, anyplace and for any reason! The Birth, Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ gives us access to come before God and to have meaningful exchanges with Him throughout our day! In fact, that was God's purpose in the creation. To have a relationship and fellowship with us. He loves us so much!
So what does this wonderful relationship with Jesus have to do with the workplace? Again, everything. Christ is wanting to be a part of everything we do. God created work. Work is a blessing. It allows us a vehicle for expression. An opportunity to affect our community. A way to make the world a better place for everyone.
It is God's desire that no man should perish but that all would have eternal life. Our workplace is an opportunity for us to show the world who Christ is and what He has done for us. It is the most natural place to demonstrate our Christianity. As we study the Bible we see that most of it's stories take place in the workplace. People expressing their faith, hope and love through their daily lives.
I would like to introduce you to a website that is dedicated to exploring the importance of bringing your faith to work. The site is http://www.marketplaceleaders.org/. They also offer a free daily e-newsletter called T.G.I.F. Today God is First. I highly recommend this site and the newsletter. I have been receiving it for about a month now and it is well worth the read!
I hope this blog is a blessing to you! Please feel free to comment, suggest or just bloviate here as we pursue a healthier lifestyle. Tomorrow I will be discussing the importance of rest and sleep to our overall health.
Grace and Peace,
