1 Corinthians 9:27 But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified.

As we celebrate Christmas and the new year, it’s important to keep our bodies in check. Around this time of year, we tend to cook a lot of food. We all want to be healthy and live long. One way to do that is to eat well. That means, being led by the Spirit with what we eat and how much we eat.

If God says don’t get a second plate, let’s keep our flesh in check, and resist the temptation of a second plate. If God says don’t eat a certain thing too late, don’t eat it.

We have to understand God is looking at the big picture and is lending a helping hand with our overall health. Let’s listen to Him and keep our flesh in check.
