1 Corinthians 6:19-20 - Today's devotional

The following devotional by Phil Ware(www.crosswalk.com) reminds us that our bodies are the temples of the Holy Spirit and that we are called to take care of them. A plant-based is honoring to God for it is a healthy way to nourish our bodies and at the same time preserving the environment, and alleviating animal suffering and world hunger by showing compassion to all of God’s creation.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20:  "Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body."

Thoughts on today's verse: We are God's temple! He lives in us and what we do in our bodies is part of our worship to him. We are called to not only abstain from impurity, but we are called to glorify God in our bodies.

Prayer: Father, I confess to you that I sometimes lose sight of how precious my body is to you. With aging and the other challenges that daily remind me that my body is a vessel of decay, I find it hard to believe that I can glorify you with it. Please, through your indwelling Spirit, quicken in me a deeper reverence and appreciation of your presence in me. Through Jesus I pray.
