You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

Knowing that you will one day be raised and given a resurrection body, how should you live in your present body?

Recognize that you are wholly owned by Jesus Christ. Christ has the right to determine where you live and what you do. He bought you with His own blood, and over every area of your life Jesus Christ says, “Mine.” You are not your own. Your life is His to spend, and the great calling of your life is to glorify Him.

Be done with everything that defiles your body or soul. “Since we have these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from every defilement of body and spirit, bringing holiness to completion in the fear of God” (2 Cor. 7:1). Paul could have appealed to laws, but instead he appeals to promises. He is going for a higher motivation.

Use your mind in a way that glorifies God. Don’t pollute your mind. Fill your mind with what is pleasing to God. It’s the same with your body. Don’t use your body as a vehicle for sin (Rom. 6:13). Use your eyes, ears, hands, and feet in ways that honor Christ. Let your tongue speak words of kindness and your hands be a means of helping, not hurting others.

Are you living in your body as if it belonged to you, or as if it wholly belongs to Christ?
