Not Your Own

What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?  For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s. 1 Corinthians 6:19‭-‬20 KJV

How is life going for you since you believed? Don’t you know that there is much, much more in God than what you are experiencing?

Most Christians say a prayer of repentance from dead works and commit themselves to quit living for themselves and to start living in and for Jesus. Then what?

Way too many slip back into a syncretism of worldly Christian living; picking and choosing what parts of God’s Word they are willing to obey. 

Living the Christian life carnally ultimately leads to destruction.

Other things like work, family, sports, and recreation take first place in life when God and His kingdom should come first and foremost. After all, we have nothing in this life but what He gives us.

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:33 KJV

All the things we hold so dear will separate us from God and His blessings if He and His kingdom are not our passion and priority.

If you are truly not your own, doesn’t it stand to reason that you should be living for Him and not for yourself?

It’s  not too late to put Him, His house, and His ways first.
