Working in the health industry, I see some many people that are sick, diseased and ones that honestly have no idea what to do about it and my heart goes out to them. Satan is on this earth to kill, steal and destroy, so if he can kill you at an early age, steal years of health from you and destroy what plans God has for you on this earth, don’t you think he might do that? Through the years, I have known so many family members and God's people that were so pre-occupied with their sickness that they failed in fulfilling their maximum potential in Christ.
Our focus as Christians should always be Jesus Christ and saving souls, however the “Second Hand of the Gospel” includes God caring for his children with food, water and mental and physical health. In the book of Matthew 83% of Jesus’ mission was about keeping us alive and well. Jesus said in Matthew 11:4-5:
“Go and show John those things which you hear and see: The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them.”
Five of the six listed in this verse deal with your health and wellbeing. Our Father cares greatly for us and knows that we will have a tough time on this earth serving Him if we are sick or dead! A big part of our mission today should be about the wellbeing of our people.
God has blessed me to be a part of a wonderful organization helping people called Maximized Living. Originally started by Dr. Ben Lerner, the author of great books like Body by God and Winning My Race, Maximized Living has partnered with the Dream Center in Los Angeles and Memphis as well as having health centers across the country. In the coming weeks, I will share with you how Maximized Living has blessed my life and so many that I work with on a daily basis. Be well.
