Introduction: Wellness Series

Physical, Emotional, and Spiritual are three different states of well being. These 3 steps will be discussed in 3 separate series. 

Physical well being is a state that involves the body using our common sense. What is common sense? Common sense according to Oxford language is a good sense and sound judgment in our practical matters. 

Part 1 — Physical Wellness Series

Part 2 — Emotional Wellness Series

Part 3 — Spiritual Wellness Series

We cannot deny that we use our senses in trying to make the right decision base on our five senses of seeing, hearing,  smell, taste, and touch and other senses which are unknown senses that come and go, which occasionally is linked to a phenomenon or a supernatural nature.  We do not need to be a genius to possess common sense if we have a sound mind and fully functioning senses. We need some awareness and knowledge of things around us.  

In the Bible, Paul claimed that his revelation came from Jesus, while the revelation of John came from God through the angel sent by Jesus as instructed by the Father.  It is like; Jesus became the Savior because He was sent by the Supreme Savior, which is God the Father Almighty. 

Are you getting confused when Paul said not to listen to the other Jesus that the apostles were preaching but to the Jesus that he was preaching?   In this world, we must know where we position ourselves and by doing that, we have to know who we are in this world.  Are we like priests who can intercede between God and men or are kings that provide the wisdom of God, or are we both that have authority and access to God’s holy of holies?

We should not insist on what we believe, all we need to do is share the word and it is up to them to accept it.  The most important thing to do to accomplish our mission is to show our gentleness and humbleness and the truth that will come out of our mouth.  If we already planted the seed, in due time it will spring and they will feel the emptiness and hunger for the word that they already heard and ignored.  If we keep our pride out of our way and avoid being arrogant, there will be an abundant harvest. 

We can get the glory of God that was lost due to sin in the garden back by using some, if not, all the Gifts of the Holy Spirit.  We may be able to enlighten them and follow us and together we may harvest the fruit of the Spirit which is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. 

The fruit will change their lives once they accepted the Holy Spirit to dwell in their heart.  We are on a mission to get back the glory that was lost, the paradise and perfection.  It might be more work but it is worth it.

God said: in Proverb 3:7-8 “Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and shun evil. This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones” Spiritual wellness acknowledges our search for deeper meaning in life and is reflected when our actions become more consistent with our beliefs and values. When we choose life over death and prosperity over the disaster, we need to follow the command to love the LORD our God.

Emotional wellness can be measured with our happiness and success can be expressed by laughing or crying. The satisfaction that our physical body is enjoying cannot be hidden by our emotions. With a healthy body and healthy mind springs, Spiritual wellness, and the feelings of peace with life is achieved. With the blessings from above; Physical, emotional (Senses) and Spiritual health makes our life complete and more than enough to be thankful to the Almighty God.
