Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body- 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
Serving God is accepting the reality that we have to crucify ourselves daily to align our thinking and actions with the will of God. Every day we are bombarded with things from the world that threatens the temple of the Holy Spirit within us. In order to live our lives as a free and redeemed people, we recognize that we were bought with the priceless blood of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Living a surrendered life means giving up any “rights” that you have over your own life to God who has given us all a purpose. This means when the temptation and inclination to be selfish arise we make a choice not to sin or break His commandments. It is not easy living but it is Godly living with promises of lavish living in the Spirit now and eternal life with our Risen King Jesus in His heavenly kingdom.
Prayer: Hallelujah Lord Jesus we bow unto You who is able to keep us from falling and to present us faultless before the presence of the throne with exceeding joy! You are a merciful and gracious God! We thank you that you have cleaned up our lives and have granted us the power of the Holy Spirit that actuates our minds and hearts.We pray for the lost and abandoned and those who do not yet know your love Lord Jesus. Please keep our lives, families, and nations in your eyesight God lest we forget the mighty works of your hand and the price that you paid on Calvary.
