Lynn Bettes Community in Action Devotional

“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.” 1 Corinthians [6:19]-20

What happens to our body matters to God!

The thought that God has chosen to dwell with us in our mortal body is absolutely amazing! The “body is a temple” indicates the desire God has for us to declare his glory by how we treat and use our physical body.

Are you being a good steward with the body God entrusted to you? There are several components to this stewardship. Our eating and exercise habits will affect the length and quality of service we will offer to God. Our treatment of our bodies should reflect God’s ownership of them. Our use of our bodies for experiences that fit within God’s moral desires is important to living in His Kingdom.

What is one change that you can take today that would better honor God? God’s Spirit is within you and will empower your continued transformation as you trust God’s desire to be glorified in your physical body.

PRAY
Heavenly Father, I need to be convinced that how I eat and live matters to You. You have chosen to live with me, and I want to live in a way that honors You in everything. Amen.
