In 1 John 3:2 the Apostle John gives the greeting, "Beloved, I pray that in all respects you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers." Most if not all secular weight loss programs offer less of a blessing than the Apostle John. They typically offer behavior modification techniques for losing weight but truly can't satisfy the soul with changes that are physical and spiritual. The Apostle Paul spoke of bodily discipline (behavior modification) being of little profit but godliness (life in Christ) being profitable for all things which includes that of weight loss. Because all people are in the flesh, Christians experience struggles with their physical bodies but the choices they have aren't limited to lifeless behavior modification techniques. For a believer who has life in Christ, Jesus turns people:

  • from guilty to not guilty
  • from death to life
  • from darkness to light
  • from hatred to love
  • from weakness to power
  • from bondage to freedom
  • from tribulation to triumph
  • from grief to glory
  • from defeat to victory
  • from failure to success
  • from fear to faith
  • from I can't to I can

If you're a Christian, you are on the road to the good life already but I still ask you to read my blog. Perhaps you can share with others about your life journey as a Christian and specifically about how Christ has impacted your ability to lose weight.

If you aren't a Christian, would you allow Jesus to change your life for both your physical and spiritual needs for the future as well as the here and now? Here is a link to my page about how you can receive Jesus as Savior (one to be received) and Lord (one to be obeyed).
