Title: Not just eating......
Post by: Richard OFfill on November 17, 2019, 04:42:22 PM
One time I heard about a person who was reading in the Spirit of Prophecy that we eat too much, so they began to eat less.
Every time they read that quotation they were convicted that they still were eating too much until at last, they were just skin and bones!

As born-again Christians, we need to understand that, though a holy life will impact the diet, it is much more than the way we eat. A Spirit-filled life is more than than a diet or some special recipe. It will be a balanced life. We are to glorify God, not just in our eating and drinking, but in whatever we do.

Many tend to emphasize one truth at the expense of all the rest. A life in Christ does not lead to extremism or fanaticism. It is sin that is fanatical and goes to extremes. Sin has unbalanced us. It makes us tend to go to extremes even in good things. I am praying that the Lord will lead me to the middle of the road, and I don't mean between good and evil, but the middle of the right road.

so true

it's not just one thing or another.... it's the whole life of Christ that we must have in our souls.
