Additional Scripture Verses Shared by Pastor Louis

 

3 Know that the LORD is God.  It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.  (Psalm 100:3)

18For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, 19but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.  (1 Peter 1:18-19)

I have been thinking about Pastor Louis' message from last week.  His Spirit has convicted me that I need to take better care of God's temple.  In other words, I need to take better care of myself and get exercising.  I routinely encourage my patients to eat a healthy diet and engage in regular exercise, but I do not take the time to do it myself.  I am concientiously eating less than I used to because I know my activity level has gone down.  I now want to work on the second part...getting more exercise.  Today I took some baby steps and swam.  With God's help, I'll be able to incorporate more regular times for exercise.  Next time you see me, ask me how I'm doing.  Please hold me accountable to taking better care of God's temple.  Many thanks.
