1 Corinthians 6:19-20 (NKJV)
19 Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? 20 For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.
You were bought at a price. Think about that a few minutes before you read further. God created You because He loves you. God sent Jesus to walk among us because He loves us. Jesus went to the cross because He loves us. He paid a price for our sins that we cannot even put a value on. Your sins washed away by His blood when you seek His forgiveness and accept His love. In accepting His love you ask Him to be Lord of your life. Then we are filled with the Holy Spirit to guide us because our body is the temple.
We are loved by God that much. We can only get to Heaven through Jesus and the price He paid for us. His love for us is amazing and we should always be a reflection of His love through us to glorify Him. When we are good stewards of His love He is glorified. What we share is the key and some of the ways are financially, offering, cooking, teaching, cleaning, visiting, encouraging, as well as others. These are just a few of the many ways we are to glorify God. Others should be drawn to His love through you. We should never be the center of attention; in fact we should never draw attention to ourselves at all. When we do others will follow us and not the One Who created us. So please make sure all that you do is for God’s glory and thank Him for His love and His love through you.
Father: Thank You for Your love. Thank You Jesus for Your love. Thank You for going to the cross for me. Thank You Holy Spirit for guiding me through love. Your love is amazing God and I am blessed to be a child of You.
In Jesus Loving Name, Amen.
