WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY?
My Own Business
Maybe you have heard someone say, "What I do with my body is no one's business but mine." And even though we could argue about the damage we might do to others (mate, children, parents) by our selfishness, it would be good for us to ask "What Does The Bible Say?"
What Does The Bible Say?
I Corinthians 6:18-20 says... Shun immorality. Every other sin, which a man commits, is outside the body; but the immoral man sins against his own body. Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, which you have from God? You are not your own; you were bought with a price. So Glorify God in your body.
In this passage we learn...
1. That immorality is a sin against our body.
2. A Christian's body is a temple of God. (Where God lives on Earth.)
3. God already owns your body.
4. He bought us.
5. Our duty is to glorify God in our bodies.
So it makes a big difference what we do with our bodies.
