Perfect

Leviticus 1:1–4 AV
And the LORD called unto Moses, and spake unto him out of the tabernacle of the congregation, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, If any man of you bring an offering unto the LORD, ye shall bring your offering of the cattle, even of the herd, and of the flock. If his offering be a burnt sacrifice of the herd, let him offer a male without blemish: he shall offer it of his own voluntary will at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation before the LORD. And he shall put his hand upon the head of the burnt offering; and it shall be accepted for him to make atonement for him.
the offerings are to be without blemish
without any defects, the best, healthy
the offering is given to God
Exodus 36:8 LEB
And all who were skilled of heart among the doers of the work made the tabernacle with ten curtains of finely twisted linen and blue and purple and crimson yarns, with cherubim; he made them, the work of a skilled craftsman.
Exo 3
Everything was made to Gods exacting standards
it was magnificent
everything in its place and well taken care of
The Tabernacle / Temple belongs to God

Infirmity from Sin

John 5:14 LEB
After these things Jesus found him at the temple and said to him, “Look, you have become well! Sin no longer, lest something worse happen to you.”
Jo
It looks like this mans infirmities is caused by sin
John 9:2 NKJV
And His disciples asked Him, saying, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?”
John 9:3 LEB
Jesus replied, “Neither this man sinned nor his parents, but it happened so that the works of God could be revealed in him.
Other sickness is from God to demonstrate Gods power
because of the fall there is sickness
we are Born with an infirmity

We are not our own

1 cor
1 Corinthians 6:19–20 NKJV
Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.
We have been bought with the price of Jesus Blood
our bodies now belong to Jesus
Jesus wants to use, for the glory of the Father
today's society have many deceases -- diet
we sin against God by not having His temple immaculate
Romans 12:1 NKJV
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.
Service = Worship
we worship God when we present our bodies to Him
to do with what He wants
without blemish,
are we worshiping when we are sick because of sin?
when he wants us to go, and cant because of sickness
2 Corinthians 5:15 LEB
And he died for all, in order that those who live should no longer live for themselves, but for the one who died for them and was raised.
God does not make rules for us to live, “because I can”
He makes them for our benefit
A man dubbed the King of Franks downed 20 hot dogs in 12 minutes of Coney Island competition. The man, whose nickname is "Large," devoured his competition in the process, and then boasted that he was off to a barbecue. His nearest challenger consumed only 15 dogs. Large complained that the humidity kept him from matching his record meal of 21 franks the year before, but said he relishes the chance to break his record next year. Large was interviewed later as he took a break from cooking some of his winnings--365 hot dogs. He quipped, "I feel a little tired, but I'll probably eat something a bit later." It seems that Large lives to eat. We too can choose to live for food, drink, or any other kind of pleasure, but overindulged appetites will consume us in the process. Our bodies were not made to be served; they were designed to serve the Lord. Eating contests can be fun, but not when they become a way of life. Only when we realize that our bodies are temples made to be filled and controlled by the Spirit of God, will we find what quiets the hunger within. We won't find true satisfaction until we are filled with the Lord, who made us for Himself. --M R De Haan II

God gave me a life in this body of mine To have and to use for a specified time; So I must be careful of life, for you see My body does not belong to me. --Anon. We all must eat to live, but some just live to eat
our bodies belong to Jesus
they are to be used for the glorification of the Father
therefore they are to be in the best shape possible.
when the call comes we will be prepared.
Repent
Romans 12:2 LEB
And do not be conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, so that you may approve what is the good and well-pleasing and perfect will of God.
