Constitution I Corinthians 6:19-20 Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20) you were bought with a price. Therefore honor God with your body.
Paul was saying in essence, "Don't you know that your body is the Governor's mansion? He is holy, and He lives in you; therefore, you need tokeep the residence clean for Him and in accordance with His nature. Remember, we will be held accountable for our actions if we don't repent, meaning to turn to another direction. Keep in mind, that Jesus paid for the redemption of your spirit, soul and body, so that the Governor could live within you. Therefore, as steward of the Governor's mansion, you should honor it by taking care of it.
Allow me to say this one point. We as humans should make a strong effort not to eat everything that looks good. Believe it or not, it's killing us. For some of us, the only exercise we get is walking to the food and moving our hand up to that hole under our nose! Keep in mind, right is right and wrong is wrong and not eating healthy will eventually kill you. Now, there, I made an effort to say that as nicely as I could. And for those who are offended, get mad about it, mad enough to change your eating habits and go to the gym and work out.
Jesus taught and stated in the Constitution: Matthew 6:22-23 The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are good, your body will be full of light. 23) But if your eyes are bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness.
Keep in mind, the culture of the world enters our lives through our eyes and ears. Whatever we watch on television or the internet or read in a book, affects the quality of our inner personal culture. Whatever we keep listening to influences our lives. We must not allow a destructive culture to invade and destroy our lives and our work for the heavenly Kingdom.
Remember, being a Kingdom Citizen requires that we exist in some degree of tension because we live in the midst of a culture of rebellion and death. Our old culture is fighting with the demands of the new culture. yet we live here for the purpose of spreading the kingdom of light and pushing back the kingdom of darkness. This is why Jesus prayed to the Father, just before He died....
Constitution John 17:15-18 My prayer is not that You take them out of the world but that You protect them from the evil one. 16) They are not of the world even as I am not of it. 17) Sanctify them by Your truth; Your Word is truth. 18) As You sent Me in to the world, I have sent them into the world.
Though we live on earth, we are also seated in the heavenly realms of the King who has brought us to live in His heavenly Kingdom, and we have all the resources of this Kingdom to enable us to live out the culture of the Kingdom on earth.
