"...my body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is from God. I am not my own, for I was bought with a price, so glorify God in my body."
1 Corinthians 6:19-20
I am still working on what I would say if someone at the park asked me what this means.
It begins with two of my life verses:
"So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all othe glory of God."
1 Corinthains 10:31
"And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
Am I making much of God in every aspect of my life? Do I make much of God as a wife? mother? daughter? in the workplace? in my church and community? Not focusing on what Jody can do today, not doing things in my own strength. Not trusting in my to-do list of works righteousness, but in the righteousness of the blood of Jesus Christ. The price I was bought with was Jesus' blood. There is nothing I can to do today to add anything to that price. It is because of God...rich in mercy...because of his GREAT love for me, when I was dead in my trepasses and sin, when I was his enemy, by the grace of God I am saved.
How do I make much of God today?
**Seeing the many interruptions of my planned out day as opportunites to practice patience and humility.
**Praising God for many inches of rain so I will have water to drink and food on my plate.
**Taking the time out of my busy schedule to listen to a friend without trying to put my "two cents worth" into the conversation.
**Not having the last word with my husband, again practicing gentleness, kindness, patience with my family when they rub me the wrong way.
**Not gossiping with my neighbor about my husband or children.
**Loving my neighbor as much as I love myself(my closest neighbor being my spouse)
Minute by minute CHOICES to make much of God in every aspect of my life.
