For many of us here on SparkPeople our weight loss is something that has plagued us for years. It is something that we have put soooo much effort, thought and maybe even tears into that we feel like it is the most important thing in our lives but this is NOT the case. The Bible says in
1Ti 4:8 "For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come."
The Bible isn't saying that weight loss and being healthy isn't important & I really hope that we're all successful in our weight loss attempts but if any of us don't know Jesus Christ as our personal Savior it will all be worthless because our nice, new bodies will burn in hell for all eternity.
We have all sinned and come short of God's glory and because of that sin we deserve physical death (when our breath stops), spiritual death (separation from God) and eternal death (eternal torment in hell). God in His great love while we hated Him, while we were His enemies sent His Son to die on the cross for our sins so that we could not only be spared this penalty but also receive the gift of eternal life. This is the only way in which the penalty for our sins can be paid, only Jesus Christ paid it. You can't pay it, no matter how hard you work, all the good things you do or have done cannot appease God so please if you're reading this and if you haven't done so, accept the blood that Jesus shed on the cross for your sins. The Bible says in Rom. 10:9-13 "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
ACCEPT JESUS if you haven't done so.
And if you have I pray that you are living your life for Him, I pray that He is being reflected in your daily words, thoughts and deeds. I pray that you have died to yourself and that you are seeking to live for Him and most importantly that you are doing what He has called Christians to do which is sharing the Gospel with those who don't know Christ!! JESUS IS COMING BACK PREPARE YOURSELF!!!
