Your Spirit and your Body
The bible says your spirit plays a part in controlling your body. Notice what Paul said in First Corinthians 9:27: “I keep my body under control” (CEV). Another translations says, “I discipline my body and bring it into subjection” (NKJV). Paul knew he was a spirit being who lived in a body. He knew his inward man needed to control the behavior of his outward man. Paul makes a strong statement telling believers what to do with their bodies.
Romans 12:1 (NLT)
I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice.
Paul wasn’t talking to sinners here-he was talking to believers. He was telling people who were “new creatures in Christ,” that they needed to do something about their bodies.
How true! How true! How true! Even though it’s hard to do sometimes, we have to actually do the putting off and putting on. We have to strip off every weight and every sin that so easily take us off course in our eating habits realizing that it’s more than about food.
