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. —1 Corinthians 6:19-20

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

We are God’s temple! God lives in us. What we do in our bodies is part of our worship of him. We are called to not only abstain from impurity but also to glorify God in our bodies and honor the sacrifice by which our holiness was bought.

My Prayer…

Father, I confess to you that I sometimes lose sight of my body’s preciousness to you. With aging and the other daily challenges reminding 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 a deeper reverence and appreciation of your presence in me. In the name of Jesus, my atoning sacrifice, I pray. Amen.
