Worship as a Lifestyle of Good Health

As we begin 2013, what an awesome opportunity for our
church family to corporately focus on worship! What does
worship as a lifestyle look like and how does it pertain to our
dental and overall health?
Jesus is the center of our worship. For the believer, worship
is a lifestyle. It encompasses every area of our lives as we
truly trust in the Lord with all of our hearts and REALLY
acknowledge Him in ALL of our ways (Prov.3:5-6a). We live
in His presence at all times, because the Holy Spirit is in us and
with us (John 14:16-17).
Worship demonstrates a heartfelt love and submission to
God for WHO HE IS. Time spent in His presence leads us to
the realization of I Corinthians 6:20 that we are bought with
the Greatest Price; the Blood of Jesus! He is still the God of
miracles, signs, and wonders. He has delivered us from all of
our fears so that we can receive our victory, walk in freedom,
change our thinking, and do those things that will maintain
health and prosperity!
Dental health is just as important as any other area. Regular
dental exams and cleanings aid in identifying and preventing
conditions such as periodontal (gum) disease, tooth decay,
diabetes, heart and lung disease, nutritional deficiencies, sleep
and eating disorders, stress related disorders, thyroid conditions,
hard to detect head and neck cancers, improper positioning of
teeth, and even HIV/AIDS. Preventive care, as well as early
diagnosis and treatment, can lead to restored health, function,
comfort, and smiling again!
Impact 7 & Beyond family, may we keep Jesus at the center
of every area of our lives, including our health, and fulfill our
purpose statement as a family of friends. Let’s pray for each
other in 2013 as Paul prayed for his good friend Gaius as seen
in 3 John 1:1-2 (MSG); “The Pastor, to my good friend Gaius:
How truly I love you! We ‘re the best of friends, and I pray for
good fortune in everything you do, and for your good healththat
your everyday affairs prosper, as well as your soul. “
