My Body is for His Glory

imageYou were bought with a price [purchased with a preciousness and paid for, made His own]. So then, honor God and bring glory to Him in your body.” 1 Corinthians 6:20 AMP
How do we honor God with our body?

(1) By living a Healthy lifestyle.
We have a duty to protect our bodies, care for them, and honor God with them. That means eating healthy, getting the proper balance of exercise and rest; and abstaining from unhealthy habits that impact our health. Overindulgence in any area is unhealthy, and therefore sinful. (Read: Proverbs 23:21)

(2) By living a life of sexual purity. 
God isn’t trying to deprive us by admonishing us to live a life of sexual purity, He is protecting us. (Read: 1 Corinthians 6:18) 

(3) By wearing modest clothing and adornment. 
Dressing modestly doesn’t mean we have to dress old fashioned. It doesn’t mean we can’t wear jewelry or try to look our best. We should however, remember that we are representatives of Christ. You can wear stylish clothes without being indecent. (Read: 1 Timothy 2:9-10) 

Prayer: Lord, thank you for purchasing me – body, soul and spirit. Help me to bring You honor and glory with my body. As a representative of Christ I want  others to see Jesus in all I say and do.
