DIET WORKSHOP

 
"Jesus said to them, 'The healthy do not need a doctor; sick people do.' " —Luke 5:31
 

Jesus is a Doctor and a Dietician. He often treats His patients by telling them what to eat. Since He is all-knowing, His diets have exceptional healing effects. The diet Dr. Jesus prescribes for us goes far beyond mere human knowledge of calories or cholesterol. He tells us to give up things we don't think we need to give up, but we must trust our Doctor.

Jesus' diet does much more for us than help us lose weight or restore health. It gives us opportunities to feast on His word and His presence. This results not only in physical health but in spiritual transformation. When we follow Jesus and His diet, light will rise for us in the darkness and the Lord will guide us always. He will give us plenty even on the parched land, and will renew our strength (Is 58:10-11).

The effects of Jesus' diet reach not just individuals but the whole world. "The ancient ruins shall be rebuilt" and ruined homesteads will be restored (Is 58:12). We change the world by following our diet and our Dietician.

 
Prayer: Jesus, beginning this Lent, be Lord of my appetite.
Promise: "Then you shall delight in the Lord, and I will make you ride on the heights of the earth." —Is 58:14
Praise: St. Casimir was a conscientious objector who even as a teenager lived a highly disciplined, severe lifestyle.
