Live a Holy Life 13 April For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are Gods.
Your body is not your own. Therefore what you do with it is not solely up to you. Youve been bought with a price. Youve been paid for by the sacrifice of the Son of God. Your body belongs to God. It is the temple of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 6:19). The Amplified Bible says it is the sanctuary of the Holy Spirit. God gave us this gift of the Holy Spirit to help us live separated unto Himto walk in holiness. It is the Holy Spirit within you who prompts you to do the will of God. What would you expect if you received a spirit of unbelief? What would you expect that spirit to promote? Unbelief. If you received a spirit of lust, what would you expect that spirit to promote? Lust. You havent been given the spirit of unbelief or lust. You have been given the Holy Spirit of God Himself. Gods own holiness. His own Spirit came into us when we were born again. To do what? To promote holiness and separation of our lives, our hearts, our very lifestyles and every action unto God. Some people say not doing certain things will make you holy…like you cant wear certain clothes, you cant wear your hairstyle a certain way, or you cant wear makeup, and so on. None of those things will make you holy. They all only affect the outer man. Those kinds of things are of the Law, and the Law wont make you holy. Only Gods Spirit will make you holy. Our being united to the Lord in such a way that the Holy Spirit of God is leading us, guiding us and directing us in life is holiness. God loves you. He paid a high price for you. So glorify Him in your body. Honor Him with your lifestyle. Obey the promptings of the Spirit of God within you. Choose to live a holy life.Judges 1-2; Romans 1I am bought with a price, therefore I glorify God in my body and in my spirit, which are His. 1 Corinthians 6:20
