How To Optimize Your Total Health

If you want to Optimize your health you must ask this question, How do I define success?  Not a new question, but a relevant one.  For some it is an amount of money earned and others it is a position obtained.  Yet others it is one simple word, happiness.  But even of you are happy, make a ton of money, and arrive at your dream job, you could be missing the point, and look back with a ton of regret.  What if you could OPTIMIZE 4 key areas of your life and live with no regrets?

If you don’t OPTIMIZE these 4 key areas, you will miss out on opportunity.  How Jesus defines success will surely elude you.  Optimizing your health has a new meaning in two simple words:  LIVE DIFFERENTLY.

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind,” Romans 12:2

But something has to happen before we see all the results we want to see.  We must first be transformed by the power of the Gospel of Jesus.  It is more about dependance on Him and less about performing for others and pleasing ourselves.  The story is simple, God created man, there was a great deception of sin, Jesus provided redemption and then He gave us His presence to live a full life.  An OPTIMIZED life with no reservations.

4 Areas that MUST be Optimized –

#1 Spiritual Health – What if you and Jesus were like PB & J? What if you prayed constantly and felt the presence of the Jesus?  What if the words of the Bible started leaping off the pages at you?  What if you were living on mission through your local church?  What if you practiced sabbath and experienced true REST with Jesus?  It’s time to Optimize.

#2 Family Health – What if everyone in your family never doubted love?  The church can get another pastor but my wife only has one husband and my kids only have one person who can fulfill the role of Dad!  Man is that sobering.  What if your family got top priority in your schedule?  What if you forgive and serve your spouse?  What if you created a memory with your kids this week?    It’s time to Optimize.

#3 Financial Health – What if you actually lived financially like God owned all your possessions?  What if you gave at least 10% of your income away?  What if you were 100% debt free?  What if you only purchased what you absolutely NEEDED?  It’s time to Optimize.

#4 Physical Health – What if you lost all that weight and got control of your eating habits?  What if you lived to see your grandchildren graduate from high school?  What if eating became and meaningful act of worship?  What if you were confident in your physical appearance?  It’s time to Optimize.

Jesus has already given you success, you don’t have to “try harder”.  Each one of these areas of your life needs to be transformed by the power of the Gospel of Jesus.  He is the only path to optimization.  This Easter at 217church we start a 5 week series  “LIVE DIFFERENTLYOptimize Your Health.
