Episode 004 – CarRYING OUT The Great Commission

Does our physical health have any impact on our effectiveness in carrying out the Great Commission and purpose as a follower of Christ to further the Kingdom? In episode 004, I connect our lifestyle choices and how we care for our bodies to this greater purpose. Get ready to get into this topic, plus I touch a little on how our choices impact our mitochondrial health and fatigue, energy, etc. and even cancer.


“Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew‬ ‭28:18-20‬ ‭(NIV)‬‬

NOTable Quotes

» But when we are confronted with the commands Jesus gave, like the Great Commission, I think we should evaluate whether or not we are supporting ourselves and making the intentional lifestyle choices to be able to physically do what God calls us to do.

» Our lifestyle choices impact our physical health and overall wellness, which is part of the foundation of how effective we are at being an evangelist wherever we go, an asset to the Kingdom-building work, and actually doing what it is we are commissioned to do.


Reflect on this: Is your physical health supporting or inhibiting your role in the Body of Christ to fulfill the commandments Christ gave us like the Great Commission and spread the light of Christ?

Here are two questions you can ask yourself before eating or making a purchase:

  1. How will this impact my physical health?
  2. Will this support my role in the Kingdom-building mission of being a follower of Christ?
