Take care of body
1 Corinthians 6:19, 20 19 Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?
Remember Jesus who is God is in you, He is part of your body. Those who have their belly for a god that will be their destruction and the glory of their belly is their shame. Do not put Jesus in the position of shame again for He died for your shame once before.
Please remember that if we have any hope in our Lord and Savior who gave us “everything” we must be continually faithful to the Lord, first. Remember, God loved us first, even before He created us.
God is testing us every day and has given us the right to make our own choices. Do you know which ones are the right choices in Gods mind?
Fear God, love God, honor God, and trust God with all your heart, mind and soul and you will receive and experience the joy of the promises of God’s blessings in His time.
