DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT: Our Bodies, the Temple Of God

The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 6:18 and 19 "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?  For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God's".  This passage in the Bible tells us that God lives in us.  As a result of what this passage says, I have always been encouraged to take care of myself not only to maintain good health, but because God bought me with a price.  He suffered so much for me, so that I can one day live eternally with Him.  Part of taking care of my body is to make healthy, nutritious choices of what I put into my body and to make sure exercise, such as running, is part of my regular regimen.  Honoring God in our lives is definitely a priority worth striving for.

How do you honor God in your life?

As a temple of god I agree that we must be more vigilant in what we place in our bodies. education and wisdom align themselves with the word of God to remain pure in spirit and stay in dicipline with what god asks from us.
