Ye are bought with a price. Therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s. I Corinthians 6:20
We can do what we want with our own bodies, right? But are these bodies our own? When we come to God in salvation, we come in surrender. He actually owns us by right of creation, anyway. When we repent of running our own lives and surrender to Him, we surrender our bodies as well as our spirits. This imperfect body of mine isn’t really mine anymore. It’s His. I’m just taking care of it for Him. Guess I’d better do a better job of keeping it fed with the right fuel and making sure it is properly exercised to stay at optimal strength!
The price Jesus paid was the highest possible — His own life. That makes these bodies worth a lot! Let’s remember to whom our bodies belong, and take good care of them.
