"Faye's Daily Words Of Encouragement # 137 Today's Word Is: Body"

Definition of the word Body: Means the physical structural ; the main part of anything, a person, a group that's considered a unit. The body is the temple of God.

1 Corinthians chapter 6 -19 : What? know ye not your body is the temple of the holy ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own.

Matthews chapter 6 - 22 : The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body be full of light.

Luke chapter 17 - And they answered and said unto him, where, Lord, and he said unto him, wheresoever the body is ,thither will the eagles be gathered together.

John chapter 2 - 21 : But he spake of the temple of his body.

Romans chapter 12 - 1 : I beseech you therefore brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies as living sacrifices, holy , acceptable unto God, which is reasonable service.

1 Corinthians chapter 12 - 14 : For the body is not one members, but many.

2 Corinthians chapter 5 -8 : We are confident, I say and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.

Galatians chapter 6 - 17 : From henceforth let no man trouble me: for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus.

We're suppose present our bodies as living sacrifices, holy and acceptable unto God. Our bodies are sacred temples of God, where the holy ghost dwell. We are suppose to take exceptional care of our God given bodies, although ,sometimes we misuse and abuse our bodies by over eating and drinking the wrong things. We have to take care of our temples in order to live a healthy and happy spiritual life. We need to keep our bodies clean from any things that's going to destroy or tear our bodies down.

Our bodies, as temples should be kept clean and sacred and full of love of God; and void of evil and uncleanliness. we should always beware of what we're putting into our bodies, even the food for thought, because the mind set we carry has a lot to do with keeping our spiritual bodies clean,pure and holy.

      We need to take care of the "Lord's Temple". We have to use the right fuel.

      I have no idea, other than I have a warped sense of humor but the Mills Brothers' song "Ain't Got Nobody" started running through this gray matter. I then saw the song om youtube. Thanks for a great hub.
