|“...honor God with your body.”|
(1 Corinthians 6:20, NLT)
|Honor the Lord with Your Body|
Scripture says that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, and we are to honor the Lord with our bodies. How do we do that? By taking care of it, respecting it, and treating it as valuable. That means you use your body to bring Him glory. It means standing against temptation. It means getting proper rest and nourishment. When you take care of your temple, you are saying, “Lord, thank You for this gift of life. I am choosing to take care of myself so that I can serve You with my whole heart, mind and strength.”
As we enter into this holiday season, remember to honor the Lord by taking care of your body. Enjoy the treasures of the season, but don’t allow the hustle and bustle of the season to rob you of simply enjoying the blessing of your friends, family and loved ones. Honor the Lord with your body and walk in His blessings.
|A Prayer for Today|
|“Father, today I choose to honor You with my body. Thank You for the gift of life. Thank You for empowering me against temptation. Show me Your plan for me today so that I can glorify You in everything I do in Jesus’ name. Amen.”|
