HOW TO HONOR GOD

 
1 Corinthians 6:20


"You were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies."NIV


"For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's."KJV


Do we really understand how strong our own self wills are? Can we say that those around us can tell we belong to Christ just by the way we conduct ourselves? When we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour, we no longer belong to ourselves. We belong to Him. Our bodies belong to Him, therefore, taking the utmost care of our bodies is honoring and worshipping our Lord. So it is with the way we live, speak, and approach life. Our spirit is a reflection of whoever it is we serve.


Heavenly Father, the ways of this world have such a strong pull on us and we often fall into its' practices along with those who do not belong to You. Forgive us, Lord. Keep us mindfully aware that we no longer belong to ourselves, but to You. May we reflect and honor Christ in all we say, think, and do. In Jesus' name, Amen.

That's so true and so hard, but it's His desire that we try. Thanks for the post.
