1 & 2 Corinthians: Day 14

Weekly Truth

by

Today's Text: 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

Scripture is God-breathed and true. When we memorize it, we carry the gospel with us wherever we go.

This week’s verse is a reminder that Christ’s sacrifice for us includes the entire self—body as well as soul.

Don’t you know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God? You are not your own,  for you were bought at a price. So glorify God with your body.
—1 Corinthians 6:19-20

  • Gracie Donoghue

    Lord, I confess that I have not been treating my body as a Holy temple. I have not nourished it spiritually, emotionally, and physically the way that You are calling me to. I pray that you would expose my sin and that I would depend on your for strength and nourishment. I pray that every choice I make pertaining to my body is a choice that honors and glorifies you. AMEN! This was convicting, and I really needed to read this and see what God is telling me today.

  • Shari Remmenga

    That was really convicting time today.

    Body –
    A temple of the Holy Spirit.
    Whom you have from God.
    Not your own.
    Bought at a price.
    So
    Glorify God.

    That simple. That difficult. Help, Lord.

  • Jennifer Martin

    Lord, I have not been taking good care of my body for the past year. I long to honor You with my full self. Please help me find ways to take better care of myself so that I can honor You. Amen.

  • Jennifer Daniels

    Is that the right image for the weekly verse? I’m a little confused…

  • Kelly Chataine

    God is and has been calling me to take care of myself, my temple, His residence and it is time that I start.

    • PamC

      Me too!

      • Bridget’s Mom

        How timely indeed. I have been struggling mightily with food & health in general i.e. exercise, etc. Have completely let myself go past 4 years due to ongoing unemployment & hardship resulting in depression & despair. God is good & our relationship has deepened as a result, but my eating habits are way out of control to the point of gluttony at times. I ask for a quick prayer for mercy & control to take my health back and to treat it as Gods temple. Thank you.

  • Karen Vandenberg

    How can I better myself each day so that I honor Him?.

    • Ruth Lund

      This is my prayer too, today. I am so flawed but Jesus has more than made up for that. Sometimes I feel so tired because of sleepless nights with my two young boys. I have made up my mind to go to Church today anyway despite waking up really tired and grumpy. It’s hard work if i go because my husband doesn’t go so its just me and the two year old and four year old – but of course it always works out when I make the effort! I really want to be a good example for my children but need help to do that. I’m going to rely on the fact that Jesus has washed away my sins and he is right beside me helping me every step if I trust in him and let him in completely. Help me to live in a way that honours you, Lord! Praying for any others out there who also feel tired today. We can do it if we lean on Jesus. I believe it in my heart, I just need to apply it.

        Ruth,
        I was in your shoes, where you are with two young boys and a husband who rarely attended church. I encourage you to be strong, stay faithful and extend grace to your husband as you have been given grace by God. It took a long time (years, in fact!) but, God honored and blessed my faithfulness and my husband began going to church with us, became a volunteer leader in our student and youth ministries in our church and has even helped lead a men’s Bible study at his office (10+ years now!). Resist fussing or complaining to your husband or defending him or complaining about his lack of faith or participation to those who ask “Where is your husband today; Does he not come to church with you?”. My answer was always that I had put my husband in God’s hands and that God would lead him where He wanted him to be. I just placed my husband in God’s hands and did my best to be faithful in growing MY relationship with the Lord by attending church, participating in Bible study and placing my boys in a position to grow in the knowledge of God as well. God will honor your faithfulness. Be joyful in the Lord and let God take care of getting your husband to church! Take care of your spiritual well-being and the fruits of the spirit that grow in you will be a blessing and example to your husband and boys.
        God bless you today sweet Ruth!
