646: Honor God with your body | 1 Corinthians 6:20
By Matt McCarrick | Phosphorus Project
Through His sacrifice on the cross, Jesus paid our sin debt. Now, as followers of Jesus, we are called to honor God with our actions. There is a lot of talk today about what we can do as Christians. What is ok, what is not ok? What is right, what is wrong? How should we live our lives? I think these are the wrong questions. Our One Verse today in 1 Corinthians 6:20 gives us a different outlook. It reminds us that Jesus paid everything for our future. We had sin and judgement and death to look forward to, but Jesus turned that into life and grace and forgiveness. How should we live in light of this fact? It isn’t just about doing what is right and what is wrong. It also means we ask ourselves: what are the positive things we can engage in like serving others? Let us honor God with our bodies today.
