July 22 – Bodies
How we polute ours
If we are lovers of God, our bodies are a living place for our Lover. We defile God’s living place, by allowing gossiping, bitterness, love of money and things, lying, or any other wrong actions or attitudes to be a part of our lives. By asking the Holy Spirit’s help, we can keep from defiling His living place..
Spiritually they belong to our Lover God,
Many people say they have the right to do whatever they want with their own bodies. Although they think that this is freedom, they are really enslaved to their own desires. When we become Lovers of God, the Holy Spirit lives and fills in our lives. There-fore we no longer own our bodies. If you live in a building owned by someone else, you try not to violate the building rules. Because your body belongs to God, in Shared Love, you must not violate His rules for living.
Physically, our bodies belong to our spouses because God designed marriage so that through the union of husband and wife, the two become one. Neither spouse should seek dominance or authomoty.
