Weekly Spiritual Digest: Honor God With Your Body


20140309-130144.jpg

“Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body.” (1 Corinthians 6:19-20)

Have you heard that saying, “Treat your body like a temple?”  If you haven’t, then let this verse serve as a reminder of why our bodies and our souls are so special to us and to God.

In each and everyone of us lies an inexplicable spirit that enables us to feel absolute pain or euphoria. But what triggers those feelings, is how we treat our bodies. If you treat your body like a sewer or act in ways that reflect wickedness, then your body and your spirit will be filthy. But if you treat your body like a temple and act in ways that reflect virtuousness, then your body and your spirit will be clean.

What you consume is what you become.

Eat and consume things (whether it be food, ideas, or knowledge) that complements yourself and God, and wear attire that flatters your body, spirit, and mind–not your wicked nature.

Don’t let advertisements or people defile your body, your natural beauty or your Holy Spirit, which has been given to you by God. Instead, use your body and your beauty to glorify God by keeping your spirit clean and pure!
