Scripture Reading: I Corinthians 6:19-20

"Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ" (I Corinthians 6:15)? The Scriptures speak of our human physical bodies, Christ's physical body that was resurrected, and Christ's spiritual Body "the church which is His body" (Ephesians 1:22-23). However, in the verse just quoted (I Corinthians 6:15), we see that not only are we spiritual members of the "Body of Christ," but our physical bodies are members of Christ as well. Therefore, one could say that there is a sense in which Christ has a physical body on earth today; and our physical bodies make up that body. Like one dear brother has said: "This truth has a very practical application to it." Give it some serious thought.

God made the physical body, that He gave us, "for the Lord, and the Lord for the body" (I Corinthians 6:13). Our passage would teach us that God has a claim on our bodies in this life and in the life to come. Sometimes we think because God has set us free, we are our own bosses .... My body belongs to me now, to do with it what I please. Are you your own boss? "Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one's slaves whom you obey, whether of sin to death, or of obedience to righteousness?" (Romans 6:16) ... Truly, someone else owns you; but you can determine which one you allow to own you. "Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and YOU ARE NOT YOUR OWN? For you were bought at a price; THEREFORE GLORIFY GOD IN YOUR BODY!" (I Corinthians 6:19-20) ... This is done by letting the Holy Spirit control your physical body. .

How God Saves Men
Believing Christ DIED, that’s HISTORY.
Believing Christ DIED for YOU SINS and Rose again that’s SALVATION.
Read Romans 1:16, Romans 10:9-10 and 1. Corinthians 15:1-4
