Do you not know that your body is the temple (the very sanctuary) of the Holy Spirit Who lives within you, Whom you have received [as a Gift] from God? You are not your own, You 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 6:19-20 AMPC
We are not our own. We were bought with a price, the precious blood of Jesus. This being so, should we not serve God with thanksgiving and gladness? Shouldn’t we live for Him and not for ourselves?
No one has a right to choose what to do with the body God owns and Christ Jesus bled and died for. Everything we say and do should honor Him and His word thereby giving Him glory.
Let the Holy Spirit lead you into the full measure of the stature of Christ Jesus and thus fulfill the plan and purpose of God our Creator.
