I've Had Enough! Part 1 of 2...Health

Mark 5:25-34 (New Living Translation) "A woman in the crowd had suffered for twelve years with constant bleeding. 26 She had suffered a great deal from many doctors, and over the years she had spent everything she had to pay them, but she had gotten no better. In fact, she had gotten worse. 27 She had heard about Jesus, so she came up behind him through the crowd and touched his robe. 28 For she thought to herself, “If I can just touch his robe, I will be healed.” 29 Immediately the bleeding stopped, and she could feel in her body that she had been healed of her terrible condition. 30 Jesus realized at once that healing power had gone out from him, so he turned around in the crowd and asked, “Who touched my robe?” 31 His disciples said to him, “Look at this crowd pressing around you. How can you ask, ‘Who touched me?’” 32 But he kept on looking around to see who had done it. 33 Then the frightened woman, trembling at the realization of what had happened to her, came and fell to her knees in front of him and told him what she had done. 34 And he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace. Your suffering is over.”

Introduction: Our salvation doesn't make us immune to illness. Since we only get one body, it's our chief priority to live with good health to the best of our ability. At some point, we should declare that I've Had Enough of an unhealthy life, that doesn't honor God and intentionally be healthy!

The Bible & Your Body: Scripture isn't silent about your health...

Proverbs 17:22 "A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength."

1 Corinthians 6:19-20 "Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body."

1 Corinthians 10:31 " So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God."

3 John verse 2 "Dear friend, I hope all is well with you and that you are as healthy in body as you are strong in spirit."
