1 Corinthians 6:19,20
"Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body." ESV
Are we truly Christians? If so, we no longer own our own bodies. They belong to the Lord, who purchased them with His own blood. His Holy Spirit lives in our bodies. We honor Him with our bodies in all we think, say, and do. If we don't, we will crowd out the Holy Spirit with our disobedience and self-gratification. Then we will take back from Him ownership of our bodies.
Heavenly Father, please forgive us for the times we have dishonored you. Cleanse us from all things that do not bring glory to Your name. Help us to stand firm in honoring You with our bodies so that we will remain Yours and not return to the old selves we once were. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.
