It’s not yours.

It’s not yours.

A biblical perspective on your body.

What if you made a cake for your son – just for him – and he took it and fed it to the cat? Well, since you are a good father, you would make him another cake for him the next day… but he gives it to the cat again?

Would you say “Son, I made this cake for you! Don’t feed it to the cat!”?

Would you make him another cake? Sure you would! Because you love him, you’d make him another cake. 

But what if he gives it to the cat again?

The biblical text in focus:

The Body Is the Lord’s

12 All things are lawful for me, but not all things are profitable. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be mastered by anything. 13 Food is for the [g]stomach and the [h]stomach is for food, but God will do away with both [i]of them. Yet the body is not for immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord is for the body. 14 Now God has not only raised the Lord, but will also raise us up through His power. 15 Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take away the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute? May it never be! 16 Or do you not know that the one who joins himself to a prostitute is one body with her? For He says, “The two shall become one flesh.” 17 But the one who joins himself to the Lord is one spirit with Him. 18 Flee immorality. Every other sin that a man commits is outside the body, but the [j]immoral man sins against his own body. 19 Or do you not know that your body is a [k]temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from [l]God, and that you are not your own? 20 For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body.
