(1 Corinthians 6:19-20) Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.
The Holy Spirit lives in the body of the born–again believer.
How wonderful it is to know that He is with us constantly to counsel, guide, and comfort us.
The Spirit will not live in an unclean dwelling, therefore we must “offer our bodies” as a living sacrifce, Holy and Acceptable unto the Lord in honor of Him.
It is the very least we can do when you think about it… In actuality this body is more or less just loaned to us during our stay here on earth.
Remember who created it? Remember what He sacrificed to allow us to live eternally with Him long after this body is gone?
JESUS paid that price with His Blood.
Let us not defile our loaned bodies with anything outside of His will.
Prayer: Father, I confess to you that I sometimes lose sight of how precious my body is to you. With aging and the other challenges that daily remind me that my body is a vessel of decay, I find it hard to believe that I can glorify you with it. Please, through your indwelling Spirit, quicken in me a deeper reverence and appreciation of your presence in me. In the name of Jesus, my atoning sacrifice, I pray. Amen!!
Let Him inspire you to keep your house in order…OnPurpose!!
