TOPIC: Healthy Living [RCCG Sunday School STUDENT Manual 5 January 2020]

MEMORY VERSE: “A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself; but the simple pass on, and are punished.” – Proverbs 27:12 (scroll down for RCCG Sunday School 5 January 2020 HYMN)

BIBLE PASSAGE: 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 KJV (RCCG Sunday School STUDENT Manual 5 January 2020)

19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.

LESSON INTRODUCTION: Healthy living is some time taken for granted by many believers. Taking care of our body is not about vanity. The decision to learn and implement healthy lifestyle is as important as the desire to prosper (3 John 2). True prosperity can only be enjoyed when we are in a state of good health. Some believers get too busy with work, families, ministry, etc. and barely have time to rest (Eccl. 3:1). Sound physical and mental health is achievable with the right application of the knowledge of healthy living.

OUTLINES

REASONS FOR HEALTHY LIVING

As believers, taking care of our body is taking care of the temple of God (1 Cor. 6:15a) because our bodies are the temple of God (1 Cor.6 19-20). Our bodies are precious to God and should be presented to Him as a living and healthy sacrifice (Rom. 12:1). Being healthy makes the believers a good witness of the Christian faith and an example of a true child of God (Matt. 5:16; Tit. 2:7a).In bearing one another’s burden, only the healthy can take care of the unhealthy (Gal.6:2). Believers will have more energy to do God’s work (Eph. 2:10). We should know that we are labourers together with God, created to do the things that He had planned a long time ago to us to do (1Cor. 3:9).

We cannot do God’s work at our best if our bodies and minds are not in good state.

HOW TO REMAIN HEALTHY

  1. Eat Right: Believers should eat healthy and balanced diets (Gen. 1:29-30). It is good to abstain from foods that will have negative impact on our bodies.
  2. Personal Hygiene: Proper washing of our body parts (private and public)/is essential for healthy living. Wash your underwear regularly, be well kept in and out and look neat.
  3. Regular Medical Check-Up: Right medical check-up is part of preventive healthy habit.
  4. Physical Exercise: Find time to exercise your body regularly in order to keep fit. (1 Tim. 4:8). You can take a walk, jog or do some light indoor games/recreation.
  5. Social/Emotional Wellness and Adequate Rest: Associate with lively believers, watch your mood and beware of symptoms of depression or anxiety. Take time to rest and sleep well (Pro. 17:22, 12:25; Psalm 4:8).
  6. Avoid living in an overcrowded room/environment to prevent easy spread of diseases.
  7. Obedience to God’s Command: The ultimate way of living well is to do what God says (Ex. 15:26; Pro. 4:20-22).

CONCLUSION: It is wise to plan well for our health The prudent sees danger and takes refuge, but the simple keeps going and pays the penalty (Pro.27:12).
