Wanted to share what God put on my heart...short and sweet. I'll blog more about it later, but I just wanted to share in hopes that it would bless you.
I Corinthians 6:19-20 - "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."
Wake Up!! Don’t you see? The Holy Spirit lives inside you and inside of me.
He lives inside us and make us his home. Is He comfortable or does he feel all cramped and alone?
I hear you say, “I don’t have a fancy house, I’m not made of wealth”, but can you at least say, “Everything’s put away on the shelf?”
“No.” You say. Is it a mess or full of junk? Now aren’t you embarrassed that the Holy Spirit, King of Kings, Lord of Lords abides amidst this funk?
The things you put in your body should add fuel to the fire; to do God’s will and never, ever tire.
The things in your body should not hold you down; depress you, suppress you or keep you from moving around.
This freedom we have came at a very costly price. God has made the ultimate sacrifice.
You see this body that you have that you claim is full of junk, messed up and decayed, has been purchased by the pain and suffering of Jesus’ death on that gloomy day.
All those tears, all that pain, all the suffering that happened, was it all done in vain?
Surely you can now come to agree all the responsibility we have because Jesus hung on that tree.
Honor your body and in turn you honor our God, our Creator and our Maker.
