|SCRIPTURE: “Do not offer the part of your body to sin, as instruments of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God, as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer the part of your body to Him as instruments of righteousness.” (Romans 6: 13 NIV)|
We are to offer various parts of our body to God. Paul says they can be “instruments for righteousness.”
Let us give ourselves completely to God, asking Him to put to good use for His glory. We are to bring glory to God with our bodies. If we want to know how valuable our life is to God, just look at the cross, with His arms outstretched, nailed to the cross, Jesus was saying, this is how valuable we are to Him, and we are priceless. When God puts His Spirit inside us, our body becomes a temple of His, a residence for His love. The day we become born again something significant happened to our life, another dimension has been added to our being. Our body becomes the temple of the Holy Spirit. The purpose of the Holy Spirit is to build you up in the image and likeness of Christ to the glory of God. There is an ample reason why our body is called a “temple.” In the Bible, the temple was a place of worship, and the Holy Spirit lives in us, so every waking moment our body is to be a place where God is worshipped and God is honored.
