Chapter 5—Blessings from Obeying Natural Law

61. Those who understand something of the wisdom and beneficence of his laws, and perceive the evidences of God's love and the blessings that result from obedience, will come to regard their duties and obligations from an altogether different point of view. Instead of looking upon the observance of the laws of health as a matter of sacrifice and self-denial, they will regard it, as it really is, an inestimable blessing.—Christian Temperance and Bible Hygiene, 120. HL 22.1

62. All our enjoyment or suffering may be traced to obedience or transgression of natural law.—Testimonies for the Church 3:161. HL 22.2


63. God, the Creator of our bodies, has arranged every fiber and nerve and sinew and muscle, and has pledged himself to keep the machinery in order if the human agent will co-operate with him and refuse to work contrary to the laws which govern the human system.—Unpublished Testimonies, August 30, 1896. HL 22.3

64. A careful conformity to the laws which God has implanted in our being will insure health, and there will not be a breaking down of the constitution.—The Health Reformer, August 1, 1866. HL 22.4

65. God has pledged himself to keep this machinery in healthful action if the human agent will obey his laws, and co-operate with him.—Unpublished Testimonies, January 11, 1897. HL 22.5
