“Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore, honor God with your bodies.”
1 Corinthians 6:19-20

I did not know that my body was the temple of the Holy Spirit. I believed in God, but I didn’t realize that God wanted to live in me. I reasoned that I had to figure things out for myself.

When I came to faith in Christ and began studying the Bible, I learned many things that started changing my worldview. I had been living in darkness and discovered that I was a slave to sin. When I learned that Jesus’ death on the cross was the ransom that bought my freedom, I was progressively more appreciative as I walked more and more in the freedom He purchased for me.

Now, I want to honor God with my life and surrender everything to Him because He makes my paths straight. Even if I make a mistake, He knows how to guide me back to living His way.
