Can Jesus Really Help You Lose Weight?

Can Jesus Really Help You Lose Weight?

Was Christmas really just a little over a week ago? Stockings are down from the chimney, with care.  The Christmas goodies are all gone away, mostly, except that awful fruitcake. The tree is barely standing, shedding like crazy! This is the time we turn our focus away from the babe in the manger to …. Wait. Why turn our focus away from the Christ child? He is the one who came to help us. He is the answer to weight loss and getting healthy. Here’s why:

  • He is our treasure held in jars of clay. 2 Corinthians 4:9 says, “But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.” I do not have the power without Him to stay healthy. I do not have the power to change myself. I used to really think I did. And I did make changes … that lasted for a little while. A lifetime of wellness takes more than strong willpower.
  • It takes a supernatural power found in Christ. He has the power to change us from the inside out. Verse 10 of that same chapter in 2 Corinthians says, “We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the LIFE of Jesus may also be revealed in our body.” NIV (emphasis mine). He is stronger than your strongest temptation. There is nothing out there, no food, no drink, and no desire, that puts you over into the excess that He can’t help with.
  • He sees. There is nothing that happens to you, that he does not see. And if he sees that, He sees the whole, hot mess of our lives. Then his involvement–His investment–is assured.  And he always sees. Psalm 34:15, “The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous, and his ears are attentive to their cry.”  He sees, he hears, and he cares. He brings aid, protection and unconditional love into our lives.
  • He does really good work. Paul, the apostle in the New Testament declares that if anyone is “in Christ”, in personal relationship with him…the old is passing, dropping, disappearing. And the new is arriving; the transformation is being accomplished in those who have been set free.

Christ provides the ability to begin again, to be changed, to be transformed. It seems too good to be true because of the chains of sin, the shackles of the past, the long list of failures. But it is true. And to each one, that includes you. Jesus says…if the son set you free then you are free indeed.

  3. A “LIFETIME of Wellness” takes more than strong will-power. It takes SUPERNATURAL POWER found in CHRIST!

    CHRIST provides the “ABILITY” to “BEGIN AGAIN”

    Thanks Vicki, these statements seemed to jump out of the article and into my spirit. WORDS of Truth & Life.
    I’m going to pick up that “ability to begin again” – NOW, therefore there is no condemnation.
    Goal: a “lifetime of wellness”
    Needed: “ supernatural power found in Christ.” ☑️Provided
