Our BODIES belong to the LORD

 

1 Corinthians 6:19

King James Version

19 What? 

know ye not that your body is the temple 

of the Holy Ghost which is in you, 

which ye have of God, 

and ye are not your own?


How misled all of us have been.

How corrupt our bodies have become.

How vile our minds have become.

Everything we watch, buy, think, and aspire for, have been focused on our bodies alone.

We have created temples, and gods, of fat, lust, greed, vanity, and pride.

But did you know our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit?

1 Corinthians 3:16

King James Version

16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, 

and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?


And that our bodies, and spirits, belong to the Lord?

1 Corinthians 6:20

King James Version

20 For ye are bought with a price: 

therefore glorify God in your body, 

and in your spirit, 

which are God's.


And because our bodies belong to God, it is holy.

1 Corinthians 3:17

King James Version

17 If any man defile the temple of God, 

him shall God destroy; 

for the temple of God is holy, 

which temple ye are.


Generations past have not taught us to honor our bodies, and spirits, to glorify God alone.

We have all been deceived, and deluded.

Can we go back in time, and repair the damage?

We can only move forward now, as born again Christians, committing our lives, and ways to Jesus.

We must be sealed by the Holy Spirit of God, if we are to be worthy of the Lord.

Our vessels must be used for God's glory, in obedience to His will.

Romans 12:1

King James Version

12 I beseech you therefore, brethren, 

by the mercies of God, 

that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, 

holy, 

acceptable unto God, 

which is your reasonable service.


Self will disappear, when you commit your life to the Lord.

And you will not mind it at all.

If anything, you wish you had known it sooner.

The ways of the world will not appeal to you anymore.

If we have any love for God, let us sanctify our bodies, through the Holy Spirit of God, that we may be made worthy.

We must become holy, in honor of the Lord.

1 Corinthians 6:13

King James Version

13 Meats for the belly, 

and the belly for meats: 

but God shall destroy both it and them. 

Now the body is not for fornication, 

but for the Lord; 

and the Lord for the body.


When the moment of Rapture comes, the faithful's bodies will be changed.

We cannot meet the Lord as we are now.

While there's still time, we need to pay immediate attention.
