There is this idea going around lately, well, for a while but it is this thought, an answer to everything we want to do goes like this:
“It’s my body and I can do what I want.” or, “It’s my life I can do what I want.”
And these are Christians I am hearing say this. I expect it from the world, but from a Christian? Guess it should not surprise me, I have thought the same thing at times. It sometimes feels like it justifies a decision we know is not quite up to par.
But is this really true? 1 Corinthians 6:19 &20 tells us otherwise.
“What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.”
So, what do you think? Do you really belong to yourself? It’s a hard one to swallow isn’t it? We are a proud people… but if we are not careful, we will find ourselves in places we did not really intend to go.
Share with me what you think, I would love to hear from you.
