“We neglect exercise either out of nothing but laziness or fill our calendars so full there’s no time for exercise. Our muscles become weak, including our heart muscle.” — Julia Bruce
“Jesus is referring to being spiritually dead in sin. However, when we neglect our physical selves, we bring a slow dying process to our bones – or our bodies – while we fill them up with every impurity known to man – caffeine to stay away or to have a little more energy, fats that clog our arteries, sugar and carbs that adds on the pounds.”– Julia Bruce
“If we apply Matthew 23:27 to physical self care, we would not want the Holy Spirit living inside of us surrounded by “dead men’s bones and every impurity.”– Julia Bruce
“Look at the accusation Jesus makes in Matthew 23:27: ‘Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which appear beautiful on the outside, but inside are full of dead men’s bones and every impurity.”– Julia Bruce
As we repent of our sins and ask Christ to be our Lord and Savior, our spiritual self that was dead and lost in sin comes alive and we are a new creation as the blood of Christ cleanses us from all sin.
