A Table for Our Health

While specifically written for older men (Titus 2:2), being “sound in faith, in love, and in steadfastness” would be healthy for all Christians.

If your faith was fragile, if your love was out of shape, if your steadfastness was questionable, how would you increase them?

Among other things, our regular remembrance of Christ’s sacrifice at the Lord’s Supper should help.

Faith is personal, but in an accomplished fact, and even more, in a faithful Person. Trust Him who is the resurrection and the life.

Love is also personal, and when we wonder what it looks like, we look at the cross first. You are loved, nothing can separate you from the love of God in Christ. His Spirit dwells in You, so love as you’ve been loved.

As for endurance, none of us have resisted sin to the point of bloodshed. And the only man ever to finish His race without giving in to temptation is Jesus. Jesus, who is the “author and finisher of our faith” (KJV), “for the joy that was set before him endured the cross” (Hebrews 12:2). Remember Jesus, remember the joy He promises.

Here is a Table for our health, as believers and as the Body of Christ. Believe! Love! Hold on! Christ who is your life will return for you.
