1-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. 21 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Romans 12:1,2
19-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. 1 Corinthians 6:19, 20
Realizing our bodies are not our own can have a tremendous impact on the decisions we make!
26-I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: 27-But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway. 1 Corinthians 9:26,27
Let us pray for our husbands to realize his body is the dwelling of the Holy Spirit, thus effecting his decisions about food and activities.
