1 Corinthians 6:19-20 Devotion by Stephen Taylor

1 Corinthians 6:19-20

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.


There is so much freedom found in these verses!!! I have been owned by a lot of things in this world: sex, drugs, pride, money, fear, shame, worry, and selfishness! Because they owned me, I was their slave, and the chains and burdens were heavier than I could handle. But today, I’m owned by Jesus Christ, the only One who buys something to set it free, and not just free by the world's standards but free by His standards, and let me tell you, that is free indeed!


This world wants to enslave you so it can own and dominate your life and use it for its own evil desires, but Christ desires you to walk in humble obedience and freedom in Him! This freedom He offers will bring glory to His name and people to His throne by setting the captives free, bringing the dead back to life, and redeeming what the world claimed was impossible, you and I! And if that’s not enough, then after He sets you free, you will receive the Holy Spirit in you! The Spirit of God resting in you! If that doesn’t blow your mind, then read it again – LOL!


The Holy Spirit brings revelation, wisdom, truth, discernment, comfort, and counsel in every season of our lives! And if that’s not enough, we experience God’s love through the Holy Spirit poured into us! Repent! Surrender! Be set free!


Romans 5:5 - And hope does not put us to shame because God's love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.


God bless! I love you all! Glory, Honor, and Praise forevermore to God Almighty, His Son Jesus Christ, and our down deposit the Holy Spirit!
