Give Your Body to Christ

27 01 2009

Jesus Christ laid his life down on a cross for us and the least we can do is die to ourselves daily and offer our bodies as a living sacrifice to Him.  My life is not my own, I was bought at a price.  I want to honor God with my body physically – treating it as the temple that it is.  I cannot serve Him properly when I am sick!  Therefore, I will sacrifice earthly desires for heavenly treasures. 

Ask God to give you strength to overcome your weaknesses, whether it be concerning what you eat, how you view your body, or your self control.  Instead, focus on His sustenance and how that will nourish you.  Ask for guidance in how you present yourself to others; may people know that we are Christians without ever having to speak a word.

 

Verses to cling to:

I Cor 6:19b-20

You are not your own; you were bought at a price.  Therefore honor God with your body.

 

Romans 12:1

…offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God – this is your spiritual act of worship.
