Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? 1 Corinthians 6:19 NASB
If you are a Christian because you confessed your sins and accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, something happened spiritually that you need to really understand.
When you accepted Jesus, the Holy Spirit took up residence inside of you. This is the same Holy Spirit that was with the prophets in the Old Testament and raised Jesus from the dead.
He now lives in you!
As a result, you were transformed and changed spiritually, you accepted Jesus and have chosen to live by His rules.
That is why the verse says, “you are not your own.” Again, this happens spiritually.
But what happens spiritually, has a physical manifestation. This change should show up in your life for all to see.
Is it? Because if you are not, then something is off. Either you truly didn’t accept Jesus, or you are fighting against giving yourself over to Jesus – which would mean you don’t think Jesus is the way after all.
A true relationship with Jesus, one that is fully surrendered, is the only one that He will accept.
Are you your own? Or are you His?
Father, help me to search my heart and seek to live by Your ways everyday.
