GIVE GOD YOUR BODY!
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service (Romans 12:1).
God is the Owner of your life and your body inclusive. It is outright foolishness for you to refuse to give God your body. When a Christian gives God his body, it is a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable unto God. The Bible says in the opening text that I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. Of course, every Christian should endeavor as a matter of necessity present his body to God as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable.
A Christian should take note of the fact that his body is the tabernacle of God. You do not own your body because it belongs to God. God expects you to worship and honor Him with your body all the days of your life. That is why the Bible says in 1 Corinthians 6:20, “For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.” A Christian is expected to take note of the fact that he was bought with a price, and that price is the precious blood of Jesus Christ. Your body is the temple of God and you should never for any reason defy it. Therefore, every Christian should learn to give God his body for life.
God does not expect you to use your body to promote evil, corruption and immorality. You should not give your body to sickness, affliction and demonic habitation. But you are expected to use your body to the glory of God. That is the reason why the Bible says in Deuteronomy 6:5, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.” In fact, the love of God in a Christian’s heart must be total and complete; hence, body, soul and spirit. Therefore, a Christian is expected to love God and worship Him with all of his body for life.
Daily Tip: You should learn to present your body as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable unto God. Shalom!
Golden Text: Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? (1 Corinthians 6:19).
