Mothers Devotionals Day 15 - Temple Remodel
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 “Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body.” NLT
The HGTV network has captivated many of us women by virtually touring us through a house that is in desperate need of repair and remodeling. And then—within the span of a one-hour program—we are left slack-jawed, marveling at beautifully re-configured and professionally decorated, “new” home!
The same is true when it comes to the restoration of the Holy Spirit’s temple: the rebuilding and remodeling of our physical bodies. Here, too, there are no quick fixes. Health is a journey, not a destination. Progress towards increased wellness can only be made by crafting a thoughtful plan and by implementing it day-by-day, choice by choice. Then, as the months go by, a newly fortified Holy Spirit home will begin take shape, if we’re willing to put in the effort.
Do you know that your body doesn't belong to you?
Are you going to be more mindful of taking care of your temple?
