Daily Thought – You are not your own!!

Word: Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s. 1 Corinthians 6:19,20.

Thought: Many a times we live a life our own style and don’t give heed to the spirit which is indwelling in us because we think we are on our own and do not realize that we are not our own and we have been bought for a price which is precious blood of Christ. If we have this thought in our mind, we will never we able to walk in the flesh and continue to sin in the way the world leads us to. Today, if you are able to comfortably sin and think you continue to walk in Christ camouflaged, beware – stop and think if the spirit of God is in you, since when the spirit which is of God is in us, the body would also be in accordance to it and we cannot continually sin against the body, The body is the temple of God and when His spirit resides in us, we would not be able act according to the world, but be led by the spirit. Let us remember the precious blood which was shed in calvary for our redemption and when we realize that we were bought by the price, we will tend to live the way the master wants us to and not consider to master our own selves which does not belong to us.

Prayer: Dear Lord, thank you for buying me through your precious blood. Help me to live in a way your spirit wants me to and let my body be controlled by the spirit of God. Submit to you this moment that you will lead me through and let me not be guided by the world. Amen.
