1 Corinthians 6: 19-20
In today’s text, the Bible reminds us, as followers of Christ, redeemed by His blood:
1) Our body is a temple of the Holy Spirit of God. He lives in us.
2) It is from God.
3) You no longer own your body.
4) Jesus purchased us on the cross.
5) We now should glorify Christ and not ourselves.
See, we were formally slaves to sin, but no longer. If you are saved, then you have been delivered from a body of sin and death, and now “life” rules inside your body and mind. Because of that, we have a changed nature by the power of God. We now have His power within us to be delivered from sin.. especially sexually immoral sin, as Paul addresses. We are free!! By His power and will. Let us walk in freedom today. It now belongs to us. Sin no longer rules the redeemed of the Lord. Praise His name today. Glorify Him in your body and spirit.
Verses 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.
