Create Your Body As The Temple Of The Holy Spirit
Tumblr media
The Holy Spirit has consecrated us as temples of God. We, therefore, must let the glory of God shine through us, and we must not pollute ourselves with sin.  – John Calvin.
Can you guess what is the number one culprit of illnesses and diseases in this generation? Unfortunately, those who said that Covid-19 is the number one, are wrong. The answer is stress, whether it is physical, mental or emotional. Stress has been one major factor in the downfall of the human body.
Bible Reading
Today’s devotional reading is from the Letter of Paul to the Romans 12:1. Please, read our recent devotional from the 1st Letter of Paul to Timothy 2:5: The Perfect Bridge Between The Father And You
Our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit
People forget to take care of their bodies. We do not eat right, exercise enough or rest adequately. Moreover, we get caught up with the busyness of the world. Paul appeals to the Romans to offer their bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.
Our body is a gift from God and is the temple of the Holy Spirit. We loan them while we are on earth. And when Jesus comes again, those who have followed Him will be rewarded with new bodies, one that does not decay. 
Your body, your choice
My body, my choice. Is this familiar to you? This phrase is the chant of the pro-choice movement. How does it relate to keeping the body holy and acceptable to God? Well, for starters, these women shout their so-called right to decide for their bodies with a wrong motive. Abortion, fornication and the like are not an expression of how you take care of your body. 
Moreover, they even cause more stress to themselves physically, emotionally and spiritually. The fetuses (Latin word for BABIES) are stripped off from their chance to have bodies that can be the temple of the Holy Spirit. Further, their rights to live are taken from them. All because of the wrong notion on how we take care of our bodies. Therefore, take care of your bodies, keep them holy and grounded in the Words of God. Likewise, remind each other to treasure the gift that God has given us.
Reflection
This is the time for your journaling. Reflect on these questions. Ask the Holy Spirit to test your faith and your walk with Christ.
Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates? — 2 Corinthians 13:5 KJV.
How do you take care of your body?
What are the things you do to help others take care of their bodies?
Do you consider your body as the temple of the Holy Spirit?
Have you asked the Holy Spirit to dwell in you? Accept Jesus Now.
Reflect on the verse and cite differences between the slogan my body my choice.

"Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord." - Romans 12:11
What does it mean to have zeal? It means to have a fervent and eager desire for something. It is to be intense, enthusiastic, and passionate about something. Zeal is something that the Apostle Paul said we should never be lacking in. As Christians, we should always be zealous. We should never be apathetic and indifferent.
Zeal, however, is not always a good thing. It can come from wrong motives and it can be misdirected. Before Paul was converted he was full of zeal, but it was fleshly, sinful zeal. It was the kind of zeal that caused him to persecute the church (Philippians 3:6). He thought he was being zealous for God, but his zeal was not based on a proper knowledge of God (Romans 10:2).
In our verse for today, Paul equates zeal with spiritual fervor. The zeal he has in mind, therefore, is not the fleshly zeal of his earlier days, but the zeal born of the Holy Spirit. This kind of zeal is fervent and eager desire for the things of the Lord, not for the things of the flesh. Christians have been baptized with the Holy Spirit and they can expect to be filled with zeal and passion for the things God has called them to accomplish in life.
However, just as the Holy Spirit can be quenched (I Thessalonians 5:19), our zeal can be quenched. The cares and concerns of life and the opposition of the enemy can get to us and undermine our zeal. That's why Paul feels the need to encourage the Roman church to never lack in zeal. Although our zeal is born of the Spirit, we have some control over it. We can decide to let the zeal we have been given by the Spirit flow freely in our lives, despite the zeal-quenchers.
The zeal we have been given is meant to help us serve the Lord. Since the Lord is Lord over every area of life, we can expect the zeal of the Spirit to help us in every area of life. We can expect to be zealous friends, mothers and fathers, educators, business people, etc. Above all, we can expect to be zealous in our roles in the church and in the spread of the gospel.
Today, let us fire up our zeal for the Lord and the things of the Lord in every area of our lives.

Message of the Day: Christians Endure Afflictions Joyfully, Prayerfully!
Message of the Day: Christians Endure Afflictions Joyfully, Prayerfully!
“…rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer..” (Romans 12:12, NKJV) Christians must be sincere and straightforward in everything they do. They must in particular have a loving care for those who are fellow members of Christ’s body. Besides being spiritually enthusiastic, they must work hard at developing qualities of perseverance and prayerfulness. They must…

“Do not be overcome and conquered by evil, but overcome evil with good.” Romans 12:21 (AMP)
“Do not let evil defeat you; instead, conquer evil with good.” Romans 12:21 (GNT)
It's a constant battle out there! The devil and one third of the angels, who fell with him (Heb 12:22, Rev 12:3-9) are out there in the world with only one objective - to cause as much damage as possible. They will use our own human sinful natures, their lies and all kinds of other devious means against us to steal our joy and derail our lives. But Jesus has given us back authority (Lk 10:19). The devil is a defeated foe. He can only win if we fall for his deceitful tactics. When we reject his lies and stand firm against him, he flees. (James 4:7 AMP)
God knows that we will have troubles and sorrows in our earthly lives (Jn 16:33), so He provides spiritual weapons and armor, “Put on the full armor of God to protect yourselves from the devil and his evil schemes... Take also the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.” (Eph 6:11-18).
Jesus defeated the devil on the Cross, so even if Satan tries every tactic he knows to destroy your peace and joy, you can also defeat him, in Jesus' name. You have spiritual weapons through God's Word. You have the goodness of God within you, by way of The Holy Spirit. And you have the power of God behind you. You can overcome anything.
And if the devil tries to get you to do evil, do good instead, with the help of the strength that comes from Jesus (Phil 4:13). Because your best defence against evil is to do good. And God will also reward you for the good you do! (Lk 6:35, Gal 6:9‭-‬10, Col 3:23‭-‬24)
Friend, trust God and do good and in Jesus' name you will conquer evil! 🙌
PRAYER: Dear Lord, thank You for all you do for us and all the things you give us to keep us safe. May we look to You whenever we are afraid or under spiritual attack. Help us to remember that the devil is a defeated foe and we are more than conquerors (Ro 8:37). We have authority and victory in Jesus' name! Lord, help us to conquer evil with good! In Jesus' name, Amen! 🙏

Turn to Christ for a New Life
Do not let your human nature control you, do not let sin rule over you. “Do not conform yourselves to the standards of this world, but let God transform you inwardly by a complete change of your mind. Then you will be able to know the will of God – what is good and is pleasing to Him and is perfect.” (Romans 12:2)

Romans 12:19-21
The natural instinct is to answer enmity with enmity and kindliness with kindliness. There are many people of whom we think well and like, for no other reason than because we believe that they think well of and like us. Such a love is really selfishness. In the same fashion, dislike and alienation on the part of another naturally reproduce themselves in our own minds. A dog will stretch its neck to be patted, and snap at a stick raised to strike it...

Living Sacrifices
(1 Corinthians 3:16-18; 1 Corinthians 6:18-20)
1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. 2 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.
3 For through the grace given to me, I say, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith. 4 For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office: 5 So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another. 6 Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith; 7 Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching: 8 Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that showeth mercy, with cheerfulness.
Love, Zeal, Hope, Hospitality
(John 13:31-35; 1 John 3:11-24)
9 Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good. 10 Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honor preferring one another; 11 Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord; 12 Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing earnest in prayer; 13 Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality.
Forgiveness
(Matthew 18:21-35)
14 Bless them who persecute you; bless, and curse not. 15 Rejoice with them that rejoice, and weep with them that weep. 16 Be of the same mind one towards another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits. 17 Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men. 18 If it is possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. 19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place to wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. 20 Therefore if thy enemy hungereth, feed him; if he thirsteth, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. 21 Be not overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. — Romans 12 | Webster's Bible Translation (WBT) The Holy Bible; Webster’s Bible Translation by Noah Webster, a revision of the King James Bible, Published in 1833 is in the public domain. Cross References: Genesis 42:25; Leviticus 19:18; Deuteronomy 14:2; 2 Samuel 17:29; 2 Kings 6:22; Ezra 10:11; Job 2:11; Psalm 36:4; Psalm 131:1; Proverbs 3:30; Proverbs 31:15; Ecclesiastes 7:16; Matthew 5:44; John 13:34; John 17:11; Acts 1:14; Acts 4:36; Acts 6:1; Acts 13:1; Romans 5:2; Romans 13:1; Romans 15:25; 1 Corinthians 12:12; Revelation 3:15

1 Peter: Elected in Love
1 Peter: Elected in Love If you are feeling a heavy load, or weathering a tempest, then you will be able to resonate with something of what the first century church was enduring. #ApostlePeter #1Peter #Election #DoctrineofElection
Three times Jesus gave Peter an opportunity to affirm his love for his Lord, and three time Peter humbly proclaimed love that came from the heart. This experience deeply affected him, and I believe set the course for who he would become as apostle and an elder in the church. During the next few days we will look at the mature elder Peter’s faith through his letters. Nero’s Persecution of…
