"During His ministry, Jesus devoted more time to healing the sick than to preaching."

"I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of. "
John 10:10 (MSG)
Jesus is interested in our eternal happiness, not just later when we get to Heaven, but right now. He wants us to be healthy, happy and live life to the fullest. So what is a "full" life? Who gets to say when we have lived life long enough, or that we have had the happiest life possible?
Jesus once said "I am come that they might have life, and that they might have [it] more abundantly." (John 10:10) If God really wants us to be happy and to live life to the fullest then He must care about our physical and mental health because we cannot be "abundantly" happy unless we have our health.
So why are so many of us in poor health? Why aren't we "abundantly" happy right now? Many times the answer actually lies in how we treat our own bodies, and what we put into our minds. Watch the very short video below (less than 3 minutes).
Jesus wants us to live life to the MAX, and to be happy!
And He has given us "rules" to live by for that reason.
