Everywhere you go, people are talking about their health. People spend lots of time, money, and efforts to make sure their health is good. If we live to be 70, 80, or 90, we think that is a long time. Our physical health is important, but not as important as our spiritual health. We will live for an eternity either in Heaven or Hell. Our spiritual life is born when we trust Jesus Christ as our Savior. After that takes place, we can never go to Hell, but we can still get spiritually sick.
People stay physically well by eating right, getting enough exercise, getting the proper amount of sleep, and going to their regular checkups. People stay spiritually healthy the same way. Just like the nourishment we get from eating right, we get nourishment from eating of the good Word of God (KJV). Just like our need to exercise our body, we need to exercise our faith by telling others about how to go to Heaven. Just like the reviving we get from sleep, we get revived from praying. And just like we need to go to our regular checkups, we need to be faithful to our regular church checkups (Sunday morning, Sunday night, and Wednesday night). That is the time to check everything to see how things are.
With all the effort to keep ourselves physically healthy, we should spend some more time keeping ourselves spiritually healthy. The Bible says in Proverbs 18:14 “The spirit of a man will sustain his infirmity…” Being spiritually healthy can help us when we are physically sick.
