1 Corinthians 6 19-20
19 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, 20 for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.
Paul is clearly communicating that he can what he wants but sometimes chooses not to. It maybe lawful but it may not be good. Sins that are committed are damaging and reap death, yet the sin of the sexually immorality is directly tied to the body and the spirit. It is a spiritual sin. A sin that does WAY more than effect ones physical.
You are not your own, for you were bought with a price so glorify God in your body really humbled me this morning. When I forget that the cross is a purchase, a payment to collect a payment due for a penalty. I belong to God. He had purchased me. He deservingly has rights to me with his blood. I am forever indebted to the Father through service to Christ. My life and my body are much more than what I see. This is huge for me as I so many times look at me and can be tempted to think I am in control and it’s my body to do what I want with. I must understand everything I do with my body should be ran through the Father. I’m his and I belong to him. The response to knowing I’m his is Glorify him, and I fail at this daily.
Father, help me understand and live out in my actions and flesh a God glorifying life. That my life is much more than waking up, working, and going to sleep. Help me to see I’m owned by you and my responsibility is to serve and point all back to you. Forgive me for not doing this. Thank you for loving me Lord
