Physical well-being is when our body is well-tuned; it enables us to survive in the world and provide support to our family.
Mental well-being is the knowledge of who we are and how we can manage this here on earth. It is based on our relationship with our Creator. Spiritual well-being is the knowledge of our purpose.
We have all heard it before, “Love your neighbor as you love yourself.” Practicing this quote in conjunction with well-being will naturally optimize both; it will enable our thoughts to be in harmony with what we desire and it will enable us to receive our neighbor’s kindness.
Spiritual well-being is also about acceptance of whom we are. It does not matter what our biological, social, or economic status is because we were all created with a purpose to serve a higher purpose.
We were all created for a very important purpose which is an individual lesson that is part of our blueprint. Once again, the more each one of usilstas (2 Corinthians 5:17) the more capable we become of living that purpose.
Some of us may come in clear in understanding and have purpose of what we were made to do, and yet other may not always understand what they are called in their hearts to do.
It is not by our power but by the Spirit of the Lord, the power of Jesus Christ that moves me to authority. The renewing of the mind with the word of God gives us the ability to walk in the Spirit.
(2 Corinthians 1:20-23) “For this reason, I bow my knees before the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, for He has given me the words of eternal salvation. I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, 19and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That in the times of salvation, he will show us the very extraordinary benefits which he has saved for us to enjoy.”
20 So we look forward to putting on our godliness, in order to serve him, 20to the glory of his might by the Spirit which he has given us.”
Here Paul refers to his calling as a reverential minister of God to hold doors open for the entrance of the Lord’s riches by worshipping the Lord’s battles for us. He is also referring to the victory that is ours by our faith, to the giving God our very own way of worshipping.
The Obedience of Gracious Sinners:
Paul calls the righteous “obedience” to the faith and contends that the same obedience should be extended to the wrestled sinners. How is this done this “for the Lord’s sake?”
Very simply, this is done by knowing the “ought” of God’s Word and expressing it in our personal circumstances – in much the same way that Jesus was giving a discourse on “the Kingdom of Heaven,” while on the cross.
Obedience is rarely celebrated, approved by God, or something we proudly proclaim as our “true relationship” with Jesus. In this, Paul adds his honors to the praises of obedience within our sin and the forgiveness of God.
Conflict and Sorrow:
The theme of suffering is central to our need to forgive ourselves and God is just as merciful (isherawfullowly) to extend grace. Paul writes to brothers who suffered much in his own suffering, and with compounded affliction.
He wrote “Christ died for our sins, and not for the works of them which evil men do, who know not the quality of God, nor seek him with the whole heart.” Those who respond to the Gospel and its challenge are not posing a challenge for God, but for their souls to be cleansed of their unrighteous, former self-righteousness.
God’s forgiveness, which is effective when His eternal Son goes free, is extended to the challenged sinner when they “rejoice in the Lord” and turn from darkness to light. At that moment, light begins to dawn on their “darkness” and God begins to grant them brighter illumination. God’s grace shines His love and grace into the souls of the lost sinner that the formerly lost man first sought refuge in. Something happens at that moment, an awakening takes place, and the soul of the sinner is healed as if Judgment had been avoided and a way for their healing was made the picture.
efficient acts of compassion are founded on the one and only acts of the Son of God: Forgiving his life, arts. 2 Pet. 2:12).
