My Body is a Temple
Saturday, March 06, 2010
In I Corinthians 6:19-20 of the Bible it tells me, since I belong to God, that my body is the temple of the Holy Ghost. By Jesus dying and rising for me, I was bought with a high price. God tells me to glorify Him in my body and spirit. I am grateful to acknowlege that my heart is the temple of the Holy Spirit.
Since I have decided to change to healthy eating, I am no longer destroying my body. I know that all of the food and junk that I was eating was making me sick (and I mean literally). I have overcome many obstacles and problems in my life with God's help and I decided that this too is possible. Somehow, I separated my spirit from my body. Therefore, I just had to make up my mind to begin treating my body like a temple.
God has invested His power, His gifts, His fruit, and the life of Jesus Christ in me. My prayer is to always see myself as God's dwelling place and to honor His Presence inside me by the kind of life I lead. I want to bring glory to God in everything that I do, down to eating and drinking.
