1 Thessalonians 5:23
Warfare with the flesh.
The Bible View of the Body
Psalm 139:13-14 We are fearfully and wonderfully made.
- We were made by God. The Creator reserves his special creation for Himself.
- We were made for God. 1 Corinthians 6:19 We were made by Him and for Him, for a dwelling place of the Holy Spirit.
Your body was made for redemption. Romans 12:1
Present your body as a living sacrifice. Present your BEST to God.
It determines your appropriation of God’s will.
2 Corinthians 5:10
God will judge us based upon what we’ve done in our bodies, both good or bad.
The determination of your future has to do with what you do with your body.
Philippians 3:18-19, 10-11
There is a sacrifice in following after Jesus.
Focus on Heavenly things instead of earthly things.
1 Corinthians 9:27
Discipline our bodies – in natural and spiritual.
