Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you? 1 Corinthians 6:19 (NIV)
We often think that God is around us and that He surrounds us with His love. But He is not just outside. God lives in each of us who have chosen to give our lives to Him. We have the power of the Holy Spirit living inside of us. We need to care for our bodies as we are taking care of the place where God lives. We need to take care of our bodies the way we would take care of God’s home. We are God’s temple and we should treat ourselves that way.
Prayer: God, thank you for the reminder that I am your temple. Show me the changes I need to make in my life to treat my body as a place you want to live in. Give me the courage, wisdom and strength to make the needed changes. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
