A temple. 1 Cor. 6:19-20 says our body is a temple of the Holy Spirit.
Our body was not made for immorality. It was made to glorify God.
It’s our job to glorify God in our body. Consistently.
And if we are going to glorify God with our bodies, then we must maintain this temple and keep it in good working order as much as we can.
We must use our body in service by carrying the Gospel message to our communities, that is the top priority.
A faith that is alive produces a desire to accomplish works of love.
Secondarily, we must keep this body temple in shape by loving our Lord with all our heart, soul, mind and with all our strength (Mark 12:30). Jesus, said that this is the foremost commandment of all.
Don’t be a SadClown (@F3NWArkansas @F3Nation). Do what you can to maintain your temple in all four areas of Lord loving that Jesus described.
Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body. 1 CORINTHIANS 6:19-20 NASB
Whatever you do, do it all to the glory of God.
Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. 1 CORINTHIANS 10:31 NASB
How are you maintaining your temple this week (mind, heart, soul or strength)? Please comment and share with others.
