Not your own – Verse of the day – Day 69
David W. Aucoin
Not your own – (1 cor 6:19)
We are not our own yet many times we stray off on our own direction. Knowing what we are to do and not doing it is disobedience and rebellion. We know what he asked us to do, but we do what we want from yielding to our flesh. Our two natures battling day by day. What we do with our bodies is important to God. If we are a workaholic, alcoholic or indulge in anything that harms our body we disobey God and we are living against what God intended us to be. Our bodies are the temple of God.
We are a workmanship crafted by the author of the Universe and he knows what is best for us so we need to obey him with our service and honor. Let us present our bodies as unto God.
Today let me not do things that shall harm my body and lift my spirit to the God of the universe and offer myself a living sacrifice.
We or not our own. We were bought with a price. We either obey or disobey.
David W. Aucoin
Reflection Passage: (Psalm 63)
1 You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water.
2 I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory.
3 Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.
4 I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands.
5 I will be fully satisfied as with the richest of foods; with singing lips my mouth will praise you.
6 On my bed I remember you; I think of you through the watches of the night.
7 Because you are my help, I sing in the shadow of your wings.
8 I cling to you; your right hand upholds me.
9 Those who want to kill me will be destroyed; they will go down to the depths of the earth.
10 They will be given over to the sword and become food for jackals.
11 But the king will rejoice in God; all who swear by God will glory in him, while the mouths of liars will be silenced.
