FIRST PLEASE READ
Once We Make the choice to follow Yeshua (Jesus name is the language He actually spoke), things change. At Least it should. See, from that point, it’s not about you anymore. From that point on you are devoting your life to Yahweh, YOUR LIFE! Not just Sunday mornings. And When you dedicate your life to Him for real, study His Word, pray, and worship Him regularly, you become a new person, You are Transformed!
In 2020, one of the things we abuse more than anything else in our body. We ignore it, abuse it, and neglect it. We don't show our body respect. Now I know what you are saying. “I don’t disrespect my body. How!” Well...
Ok, so now I bet you are saying, “So it’s my body, I can do what I want with it. I’m going to die anyway. I’m going to die happy.” Well, that’s a lie! The enemy uses that type of thinking to keep you in bondage and destroy you. The truth is, that's not your body, You are just renting it. Your body belongs to Yahweh and He demands it!
The Bible teaches that we are to give our bodies to Yahweh as a living sacrifice, and there are two reasons for that. The first reason is that it is acceptable to Yahweh according to Romans 12:1. In this verse acceptable means extremely satisfying to Yah. A body that is dedicated to living for Yah makes him very happy and that should always be your goal. Your body is either causing Yah to feel pain or joy. The second reason is that dedicating your body to Yah is Your reasonable service. Ok, ok, now what does that mean? Let's break it down. Here the word reasonable means rational, intelligent, and logical. Using your mind to figure out how to do something. And of course, the word service means to worship and ministry, Ok now put it together. We use our mind to dedicating our body in service to Yahweh. We should be praying and studying Yah’s word daily (That's right, I said daily), thinking of the best way we can serve him. Ok now watch this. Forget what people tell you, study your word. That is how you really learn what is allowed or not allowed with your body. What is advised or not advised, What to eat, what to drink and what to do. Believe me, the more we study, the more we see that what people and trends to tell is not what is best for you.
Now you really need to understand how “The Word” (people) see the body and how Yah sees it are two different things. People will feed you the lie that you should just live life and enjoy. We are all going to die anyway right? Wrong! One of the reasons we were created by Yah was to be a steward or manager of the creation. And a manager of the creation you should always show it respect. When you miss managing the creation you disrespect it. And disrespecting the creation disrespects the creator. The Bible teaches that the body is a temple., So you should always care for and respect your body. Yah demands it!
So what are your thoughts and in what ways will you start to give your body to God? Let's talk about it.
