“Glorify God In Your Body”

Blessings folk!

Do you glorify God with your body?
Think about it.

The Word tells us about how we as Believers are to live in our bodies.
We are to glorify God.
But do we?

Do we commit sin against the Body?
  • sexual sins
  • gluttonous sins
  • dependency sins

Do we turn to food, drink, pharmakeia to pursue/attain “feelings” that we want?

Such should not be.

1Co 6:20
For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body.

As Believers we have been bought with a price.
Do not exchange the power of the blood of Jesus for the attractions and solutions of the world.
Do not depend upon the strategies of man as a replacement for the Holy Spirit.

Remember, a true Believer is…

1Co 6:17-19
But the one who joins himself to the Lord is one spirit with Him.
Flee immorality. Every other sin that a man commits is outside the body, but the immoral man sins against his own body.
Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own?

As the vessel of the Spirit of God…
As the very Presence of God wherever you go…

Too many professing Believers are “buzzed on Prozac”…
Too many professing Believers are gluttons…
Too many professing Believers are giving greater heed to psychotropic “solutions” rather than the power of the Lord through the Holy Spirit.

Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness…the Lord will move.
The Lord is clear when He states to be anxious for nothing - Matthew 6-7.
He is also clear as to the solution…

Isa 26:3
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.

Trusting in the Lord.
Keeping our mind stayed/focused/attuned to Him.
Then, He will keep us in perfect peace.
