Being a Healthy Man

Being a Healthy Man

Would you say that you're living a healthy life? And what does a healthy life even look like?

Today I'm diving into the life of King David and his fall into adultery–we'll look closely at what happened in his life.

When marriages are struggling and there's not much passion going on, that's when you are particularly vulnerable to the temptation to adultery. Proverbs 5 tells us men to, “Drink water from your own cistern, running water from your own well. Let them be yours alone, never to be shared with strangers. Let your fountain be blessed, and rejoice in the wife of your youth… and be exhilarated always with her love.”

Maybe you're in a difficult place in your life. You might be thinking to yourself, “Well, you don't know my situation…”

I want to encourage you to hold on to the hope and the love of Christ for you. In today's message we'll learn how to:

  • be intentional about guarding our hearts
  • pray about the issues that we face
  • stay close to the Shepherd and Guardian of our souls–Jesus Christ, and
  • trust in God's will for us in this.

I contend that if you apply these principles in your life, then over time you'll be a very healthy man and you will experience the abundant life that Jesus promised us in John 10:10. Watch on YouTube
