1 Corinthians 6:19-20, Your Body, His Temple

Sunday, October 31, 2010

"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," (1 Cor. 6:19-20).


Our bodies are God's holy temple... it says it right in the bible... we who believe and boast about God being our Father, we must take care of our body, keep it healthy, feed it right and not harm it. Even if you aren't a believer you too need to do the same... take care of your body! You never know when your last moment on this earth will be! If you do NOT take care of your body... you will eventually cause yourself to, yes the ugly word... DIE... We stuff our faces with foods that are not good for us and don't exercise and yet expect that we will live on forever? Yet we complain that we "CAN'T make a lifestyle change" we expect everyone around us to do it for us... Yes we should all reach out to one another and support one another... but we NEED to wake up and realize that nobody can change the lifestyle we are in until WE ourselves WANT the change... only then can we do anything about it.... we must first WANT the change and then be WILLING to make the changes!

NOTE: I'm sorry if I step on anyone's toes here, but it's the truth, you can't blame anyone else or get upset for anyone who says something that is the TRUTH!

I may be pregnant right now, but I am concerned about people in this day and age... when will we wake up and realize that we have to be willing to make a sacrifice?

This is a body conscious world.

1. Many products to clean up, paint up, and fix-up.
1. Great concern about physical shape.
1. Diets abound: low fat this, low fat that. Diet pills.
2. Exercise clubs, exercise machines, etc.
2. Great concern about physical health.
1. Watch that cholesterol, reduce that salt, eat more roughage.
2. The Christian adds another dimension to concern for the body.
1. The day you became a Christian, something happened to your body. Another dimension was added to your being.
