Cookie a day: Your Body is Private Property

19 Don’t you know that your body is a sanctuary of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, 20 for you were bought at a price. Therefore glorify God in your body.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20


We who are believers in Jesus Christ have been bought by Christ’s sacrificial blood on the cross. We do not belong to ourselves anymore so to use our bodies to do things which goes against scripture is prohibited by our Master Jesus. No longer can we use our bodies for sexual immorality, drugs, getting drunk, coarse joking and anything of the sort and finally tattooing. Imagine you go to someone’s house and start to paint an art design on the outside wall of their house. The cops would be called and you will be punished by going to jail for vandalizing a property that’s not yours. Likewise, if you would markup your body with ink…remember you are not yours. Lets give glory to the Lord with our bodies by using it for righteousness.

Romans 12:1

Therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, I urge you to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God; this is your spiritual worship.
