Although we live in these bodies, remember that our bodies are not our own...

We are spirits occupying borrowed space, in a borrowed body, to fulfill the will of Him who sent us. Therefore, we are charged with the task of taking care of our bodies as if they belong to God because that is the will of God. "Therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, I urge you to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God; this is your spiritual worship." (Romans 12:1)

His desire is for us to present our bodies as living sacrifices. Divine health is our portion, living a life of continual worship is a facet of our walk with Christ. Its not always easy, but it is always worth it. "For I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of him who sent me." (John 6:38).
