1 Corinthians 6:12-13
Contemporary English Version (CEV)
Honor God with Your Body
12 Some of you say, “We can do anything we want to.” But I tell you that not everything is good for us. So I refuse to let anything have power over me. 13 You also say, “Food is meant for our bodies, and our bodies are meant for food.” But I tell you that God will destroy them both. We are not supposed to do indecent things with our bodies. We are to use them for the Lord who is in charge of our bodies.
I know in this new year that many people make resolutions so that they can fit into a certain size outfit.
This year, I am making a resolution to make my temple the best dwelling place for the Holy Spirit to use for years to come.
I don’t want my misuse and abuse of my body to take any time away from how God may want to use my life for His glory.
I will learn to eat, not just to take off a few pounds, but to make more time, in days, months and years, for God to use me.
Lord, let me life be a Living Sacrifice, pure and holy for you. Prepare me, to be a sanctuary for you.
