Welcome to the first post of Sanctified Tourist. I want to start Day 1 of my blog with a post on the scriptural aspect of food.
Culture has clear ideas about the purpose of a healthy body. Culture suggests that health is for YOU…for longer life, for self esteem, for energy, for those old jeans in your closet. But to a Jesus follower, health should not be just for you, but for what you can do with it. Health is to help you live longer to serve Him, to give you energy for Him, to help you raise your kids for Him. Each bite you take is spiritual worship to the Holy Spirit. Each decision to avoid processed food is a knee bent to the Father. Each lesson taught to your children about healthy food choices is a song of praise to our Lord. Each meal made from scratch with tired hands from a long day at work is a holy prayer rising up. Consider this scripture.
Consuming food takes on a whole new meaning when your main focus is not pleasure or hunger. It becomes a glorious offering.
Blessing and come back again, Alice
