Or 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.- 1 Cor. 6:19-20
A surgeon makes sure he sanitizes the scalpel before he uses it for surgery. Likewise, the Holy Spirit sanctifies us and prepares our bodies so the Master can use it for His glory. Knowing we belong to God and are not our own helps us yield to the workings of the Holy Spirit.
If someone gave us a million dollars, or any other great treasure to watch over, we would handle it with care and it would change the way we do many things. Similarly, our bodies are like precious instruments God has placed in our care. We should watch over it with great care. As we consecrate ourselves to God, we glorify Him!
Because our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit, and we must care for them, Let’s yield to our owner and make the right choices regarding what goes in, out, or close to our bodies. By God’s grace, we receive His help to make the right choices and apply them, more and more, from glory to glory!
