There are so many diets people are using to be healthy or to lose weight. Pastor Rick Warren has revealed the Daniel Plan. There are diets focused on carbohydrates. There are diets focused on point systems. There are gluten-free diets. The list goes on and on.
Jesus reminds us that we are not to live by eating only bread. This can be interpreted as food in general. Sometimes many of us are overly concerned with what we put in our mouths, yet we neglect what Scripture tells us. Yes, a healthy diet is important. I’m not going to say which diet is better than another. However, Jesus reminds us that what we each are to live by includes “every word that comes from the mouth of God.”
There’s a word that I don’t think is emphasized enough. Every. Every word. We often need reminding about this EVERY part. There are moments we get caught up with particular passages of the Bible and we neglect others. Every word. I believe that greatly highlights the need to be reading God’s Word daily. How else will we be able to put every word to heart? If you want to truly live, be intentional with your relationship with God. Start by opening up His Word each day. The best diet is the Every Word Diet.
“But Jesus told him, ‘No! The Scriptures say, ‘People do not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God. ‘’” – Matthew 4:4 [NLT]
You cannot go anywhere without hearing about how to stay young and beautiful. There are so many different medications, treatments, home remedies, fitness regimes, etc. to help people stay looking young and beautiful. There are so many types of makeup as well as medical procedures to help keep this look as the years continue.
Is there something on the market that can make a person beautiful forever? Not at all. Eventually the face lifts and makeup cannot hide what natural aging has done to one’s face. But we are told in Isaiah of this promise to be beautiful forever. Only God could make someone or something beautiful forever.
God has offered each one of us eternal life. God has promised that he will make all things new. When you accept him into your heart, when you give your life to Jesus, as one of the saints you will be beautiful forever. Forever could start today. If you haven’t accepted Jesus into your life, or if it has been awhile since you have turned to Jesus, now is a great time to start your forever. Trust me, it will be beautiful.
“Though you were once despised and hated, with no one traveling through you, I will make you beautiful forever, a joy to all generations.” – Isaiah 60:15 [NLT]
