1 Corinthians 6:19-20 - Today's
The following devotional by Phil Ware(www.crosswalk.com)
reminds us that our bodies are the temples of the Holy Spirit and that
we are called to take care of them. A plant-based is honoring to God for
it is a healthy way to nourish our bodies and at the same time
preserving the environment, and alleviating animal suffering and world
hunger by showing compassion to all of God’s creation.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20: "Do you not know that your body
is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received
from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore
honor God with your body."
Thoughts on today's verse: We are God's temple! He lives in us
and what we do in our bodies is part of our worship to him. We are
called to not only abstain from impurity, but we are called to glorify
God in our bodies.
Prayer: Father, I confess to you that I sometimes lose sight
of how precious my body is to you. With aging and the other challenges
that daily remind me that my body is a vessel of decay, I find it hard
to believe that I can glorify you with it. Please, through your
indwelling Spirit, quicken in me a deeper reverence and appreciation of
your presence in me. Through Jesus I pray.
