RESPECT YOUR BODY FOR CHRIST

Respect your body for Christ 
1 Corinthians 6:12-20 gives us great examples of what God says about the importance of your body to His word. Today I want to take you through the verses of this scripture to show you how important your physical health makes a big part of your spiritual life. 

Verse 12: “All things are lawful for me, but not all things are helpful. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be dominated by anything.” Our bodies are a gift from God and he has given them to us for a reason therefore we have to use it according to His will.
Verse 13: “Food is meant for the stomach and the stomach for food and God will destroy both one and the other. The body is not meant for sexual immortality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body.” Our bodies are the sole property of the Lord therefore they have to be used for His glory.
Verse 14: “And God raised us up by His power.” Our bodies are a temple of God therefore one day He will resurrect your body and give you a better version of yourself.
Verse 15 & 18“Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ. Shall I then take the members of a prostitute? Never. Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body.” In God’s eyes sin against the body is the worst kind because He considers the body as His precious treasure. Our bodies are connected to Christ, we have to respect it.
Verse 19&20: “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.” This is my favourite verse because it goes straight to the point. Our bodies are not ours, but Gods because he bought them by giving up His one and only begotten son. What more can we ask for.
With all that being said. I just wanted you to see that you are valuable, you are a treasure. Keep your body is great shape and honour God.
