Serving God With Your Life Style

Morning Devotion from the Desk of Emma Deekor: Early Morning With God (EMWG).

Bible Reading: I Cor. 3: 16-17.

Text: Romans 12:1 KJV
"I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service."

Before Jesus Christ came to redeem man from the curse of sin, the presence of God was in Tabernacles and it was not everybody that can access the presence of God then but the priest only. This partition was broken after Jesus died on the cross at Calvary (Matthew 27:51).

Now the Tabernacle (temple) is inside your body. The bible says in 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 KJV:

"What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? [20] For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's."

With this knowledge now, you have to serve God through the life style you live. Yes. You must determine to please God with the way you present your body. Many have died through misusing their body. Present your body as a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God. This is the service you owe God. 

God owns your body. It is not yours. Therefore, be careful how you use it and avoid God's anger. God warned us in 1 Cor 3:17 that He will destroy whoever misuse his/her body. We should not yield to the dictates of the flesh.
Rather we align with Galatians 5:24 KJV which says:
"And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts''. Crucify your flesh as an evidence you serve God by your lifestyle

Remain blessed and welcome to the new week.
